September 9 at ECCB'12, Basel, Switzerland
Mass spectrometry (MS) and proteomics have developed at an extraordinary pace over the last two decades to reach levels of sensitivity and diversity in their applications that make them fundamental tools of biomedical research. This spectacular development regularly augmented the quality, complexity, and also the quantity of generated data such that, overall, the field of computational proteomics has emerged as a very rich and broad branch of computational biology.
In this workshop, we want to provide an overview of current research topics and applied methods as a mean to introduce beginners to the field and to provide a timely update to attendees with previous knowledge in computational proteomics.
The covered topics will include (but are not limited to):
- MS data identification
- PTM characterization
- Peptide de novo sequencing and proteomics for unsequenced genomes
- Indexing and search acceleration
- Quantitative proteomics and PTM dynamics
- Determination of protein interactions via affinity purification MS (AP-MS)
- Inference of protein complex architecture from AP-MS datasets
We strongly encourage interested researchers to present their recent work or interesting overviews at the workshop. Abstracts should use the following Microsoft Word example.
