Bioinformatics for Proteomics Course, Bergen, April 21-24th 2015

We are thrilled to invite you to our ”Bioinformatics for Proteomics”-course to be held in beautiful Bergen April 21th – 24th at the Proteomics Unit at the University of Bergen (PROBE).

Main content

The course will include lectures and practicals on open access software for the analysis of mass spectrometry generated proteomics data. Among the tools covering both protein identification and quantification are: SearchGUI, PeptideShaker, MaxQuant, Perseus and Skyline.


Topics Covered:

Why is the experimental design important? What is a protein database? How to convert raw mass spectrometry data to the required formats? What is a proteomics search engine and how do they work? What is protein inference and why is it important? How to interpret and validate proteomics results? What is functional analysis of proteomics data? How to share and reprocess proteomics data? How to quantify proteins?


Special Guest Lectures:

"Introduction to mass spectrometry based proteomics"
by Prof. Dr. Lennart Martens from Ghent University and VIB, Ghent, Belgium.

Analysis of large proteomics datasets: pitfalls, challenges and solutions
by Prof. Juergen Cox, Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, Munich, Germany.
