Proteomics Bioinformatics

4 December 2016 16:30 - 9 December 2016 15:30, Hinxton, United Kingdom

The course is aimed at research scientists with a minimum of a degree in a biological discipline, including laboratory and clinical staff, as well as specialists in related fields. The practical elements of the course will take raw data from a proteomics experiment and analyse it. Participants will be able to go from MS spectra, to identifying peptides and finally to lists of protein identifiers that can be analysed further using a wide range of resources. The final aim is to provide attendees with the practical bioinformatics knowledge they need to go back to the lab and process their own data (including large datasets) when collected.

The programme will include lecture and practical, computational sessions covering the following topics:
- Mass Spectrometry Basics
- MS Search Engines and post-processing software
- Quantitative proteomics
- Protein sequence databases and their use
- Protein sequence data in UniProt
- Post-translational modifications
- Standardisation of proteomics data
- MS proteomics repositories and the ProteomeXchange consortium
- PRIDE and PRIDE related tools
- Proteogenomics
- Protein interaction data through IntAct and the IMEX consortium
- Functional analysis of proteins using Cytoscape
- Placing proteins in pathways using Reactome

Limited bursaries are available (up to 50% of the course fee) and are awarded on merit. If you would like to apply for a bursary, please complete the bursary section of the online application form.
