Workshop on Fundamentals of Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics for Beginners

September 13-16, 2017, Yenepoya University, Mangalore, India

Center for Systems Biology and Molecular Medicine (CSBMM) at Yenepoya Research Centre is an advanced multidisciplinary research center with state-of-the-art infrastructure to carry out genomics, proteomics and metabolomics investigations. As a part of the academic program of Yenepoya University, scientists at CSBMM will share their expertise in NextGen sequencing-based genomics, high-resolution mass spectrometry-based proteomic and metabolomic technologies with young researchers in India, through a series of workshops. The organizing team of this workshop have successfully conducted over 20 national workshops on high-resolution mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Several faculty and students from reputed Research Institutes and Universities from India have participated in these workshops.

Workshop Objectives:

As a part of this 4-day long intensive hands-on training we will introduce, demonstrate and provide theoretical underpinnings of high-resolution mass spectrometry-based proteomic technologies and their application to clinical and biological research. Each participant will obtain hands-on training on sample preparation and mass spectrometry-derived proteomic data analysis.
