EMBO Practical Course: Quantitative proteomics: strategies and tools to probe biology


11 June 2023

EMBL Advanced Training Centre

Registration Deadline

19 March 2023
This course will provide both theoretical and practical training in the use of quantitative proteomics approaches. Participants will learn the principles of current methodologies including label-free, SILAC and TMT as well as targeted proteomics, and they will be trained in the use of bioinformatic tools for data analysis.

This course is aimed at researchers who know the basics of proteomics and who want to get a deeper understanding of quantitative methodologies, and at those who are familiar with wet-lab proteomic experimentation but want to gain experience in bioinformatic data interpretation. To enter the course a basic understanding of mass spectrometry-based proteomics is beneficial.

The principles of proteome quantification by stable isotope labeling (SILAC and TMT), label-free, and targeted proteomics
Introduction how various types of mass spectrometers can be used for proteome quantification
Computer training sessions using software tools for the analysis of various quantitative proteomic data types
