11th Summerschool “Advanced Proteomics”, Brixen Italy, 30th July – 5th August

The deadline for the 11th Summerschool “Advanced Proteomics” has been extended to the 15th of June. More informations in the attached in the following link

EuPA School on Practical Proteomics (8th-21th October 2017)

The 1st EuPA School on Practical Proteomics is aimed for early-career scientists that do not necessarily have MS instrumentation in their laboratories but are interested in learning theory and practical aspects of sample preparation for MS-based proteomics in order to collaborate with proteomics laboratories or core facilities. The renowned faculty will give lectures on common strategies in MS-based proteomics and their applications in cutting-edge biological research. In dedicated tutorial sessions, the faculty will provide a direct input about possible strategies in participants’ projects.

The practical part of the School will address hands-on protocols for protein extraction, digestion, enrichment of modified peptides, stable isotope labelling, peptide separation, as well as data interpretation after a successful MS measurement.

Bioinformatics course for Mass Spectrometric data analysis

[16-17/03/2017]

The Finnish Proteomics society, FinnProt, arranges a two-day Bioinformatics course in Biomedicum 1, Helsinki. The course will provide both theoretical and practical training in the use of bioinformatics and statistics tools for mass spectrometric data analysis, with a special focus on proteomics. Participants will get familiarized with the data analysis workflow, starting from the experimental design to functional data analysis. The course comprises both theoretical lectures and hands-on training in computer lab, where participants will be trained in the use of bioinformatics tools.

Audience

This course is aimed at MSc and PhD level students, as well as researchers who want to get a better understanding of bioinformatics and statistical methods, and gain experience in functional bioinformatics data interpretation. To enter the course a basic understanding of mass spectrometry-based proteomics is beneficial.

Schedule [Please note the venue change]

  • 16.3.2017 at 10-17   SEMINAR ROOM 3, P-floor [60 seats]
  • 17.3.2017
    • 9-11       HAARTMAN Institute, LECTURE HALL 2, P-floor [95 seats]
    • 11-17     SEMINAR ROOM 1-2, P-floor [60 seats]

For the hands on part a personal laptop is required

Registration and participation

The course is open to all academic researches and students. Number of participants is limited to 60.
Please register at: https://goo.gl/forms/bnS900s4Qr6f2B203 until March 12th, 2017.

The Oodi code for the course is 921257. Participants will obtain 0.5 ECTS (lectures) + 1 ECTS (practical session)

 

Course will cover:

  • The basics of experimental design,
  • Mass-spectrometry normalization strategies,
  • Principles of statistical tools for MS data analysis,
  • Available tools for MS data interpretation,
  • Tools for functional analysis and data visualization.

 After this course you will be able to:

  • Design your proteomic study,
  • Evaluate the quality of proteomic data sets,
  • Select the appropriate workflow and  software tools for MS data analysis,
  • Easier publish your proteomics data,
  • Get the most out of your proteomic data.

This course is supported by the Doctoral Programme in Biomedicine (DPBM)
