  • Introduction to Proteomics Course at CSC:  25/03/2019
    Course overview
    Proteomics is a systems biology approach to study the entire protein complement of a cell, tissue, or organism. This large-scale study of proteins is increasingly popular in post genomics era and has found its widespread applications in fields including drug discovery, cardiovascular research, and nutrition research, just to name a few. This course will provide both theoretical and practical training at the introductory level.  Participants will learn the principles of current methodologies and apply bioinformatics tools for data analysis.
