EMBO Practical Course: Targeted proteomics: Experimental design and data analysis

About the Practical Course - VIRTUAL

Different targeted proteomics strategies have emerged in the field of proteomics that enable the detection and quantification of subsets of proteins with a high degree of sensitivity and reproducibility across many samples. This EMBO Practical Course aims to fill in the gap between theory and the actual implementation of the targeted proteomics workflow, so that by the end of the week the students have the necessary know-how to implement different targeted proteomics workflows in their own research laboratories. The course will offer a daily keynote talk, followed by lectures and practical demonstrations, as well as practical work and exercises that will cover the complete workflow for experimental design and data analysis of targeted proteomics assays (i.e. targeted method design, optimization of instrument settings, manual and automated quantitative analysis, and statistical analysis of the data). Moreover, the course will host virtual poster sessions and social events to introduce informal discussion and adapt the technology to each participant's particular interests.
