Joint Proteomics Training Course 2024

- Advanced proteomics to define protein function and dynamic regulation -

This is a 3-day practical course combining hands-on training and lectures. Students will learn essential skills in proteomic sample preparation, LC-MS/MS instrument method development, quantitative proteomics analysis, and data interpretation. In the hands-on training, students will focus on sample preparation for whole proteome and proximity labeling quantitative mass spectrometry analysis. The students will take these datasets through guided, hands-on bioinformatics tutorials utilizing open-source software platforms to perform quantitative and functional analysis. Course lectures will cover a range of topics, from the basics of LC-MS/MS instrumentation to emerging proteomics technologies, including protein complex analysis, spatially restricted proteomes, near single cell samples, and bioinformatic strategies for data analysis and biological interpretation. We are pleased to have Prof. Ileana Cristea and Dr. Todd Greco from Princeton University, and Prof. Hidetaka Kosako from Tokushima University who are world-leading scientists in this field, to give intensive lectures and experimental instruction on mass-spectrometry and bioinformatics, and proximity labeling analyses.
