Proteomics Bioinformatics

This joint EBI-Wellcome Trust workshop provides hands-on training in the basics of mass spectrometry and proteomics bioinformatics, search engines, quantitative approaches including SRM/MRM, 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. The workshop 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.
