PhD Course in Proteomics
The Proteomics Core Facility course includes basic theory as well as practical applications within a two-week schedule.
The course consists of lectures, instrument demonstrations, laboratory exercises, and literature survey during a complete two-week schedule. Practical exercises will illustrate hands-on techniques in proteomics including protein identification, quantitative mass spectrometry, database searches and data interpretation. Participants will plan, conduct and present a proteomics experiment applied to their own research. Invited speakers will highlight applications in proteomics and related fields.
The following basic topics on proteomics will be covered:
- Introduction to proteomics
- Sample handling and preparation
- Separation techniques and strategies
- Mass spectrometry theory
- Quantitative mass spectrometry
- Characterization of post-translational modifications
- Database matching and proteomic tools
- Experimental design and interpretation of quantitative proteomic results
- Evaluation of the quality of proteomic workflows in published literature
