BBB seminar: Peter Roepstorff

Mass spectrometry in proteomics with focus on studies of protein interaction


Peter Roepstorff
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark; Professor II at PROBE, University of Bergen

Professor Roepstorff is a main player in European proteomics research and has contributed strongly to the application of mass spectrometry in the study of proteins. His research focuses on the development and application of sensitive and specific methods for protein identification and micro-characterisation. Analytical tools are mass spectrometry, chromatography, and bioinformatics. Research projects include identification of proteins isolated from micro-organisms and diseased tissue, determination of primary structure of structural proteins, characterisation of post-translationally modified proteins, including glycoproteins and phosphoproteins, investigation of protein-ligand, protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions and analysis of DNA and RNA by mass spectrometry. Professor Roepstorff is a Council member of HUPO (Human Protein Organisation).
