Proteomics Bioinformatics 2018
Proteomics Bioinformatics is organized by European Molecular Biology Laboratory - European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL - EBI) and will be held during Jul 15 - 20, 2018 at EMBL-EBI European Bioinformatics Institute Main Building, Cambridge, England, 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 once it has been generated.
This course, run jointly with Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences, provides hands-on training in the basics of mass spectrometry and proteomics bioinformatics, search engines and post-processing software, quantitative approaches, MS data repositories, the use of public databases for protein analysis, annotation of subsequent protein lists and incorporation of information from molecular interaction and pathway databases.
After completing the course, participants should be able to:
• Use and understand bioinformatics tools to analyse shotgun proteomics data, involving identification and quantification approaches
• Browse, search, submit and retrieve proteomics data from widely used public repositories
• Discuss standards in proteomics bioinformatics and recognise its importance
• Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of several experimental and bioinformatics analysis approaches
• Use tools to perform functional annotation of lists of proteins
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
