ARCH-UK Proteomics Workshop for Early Career Researchers - November 2019
5-6 November 2019 (Tuesday - Wednesday)
Institute of Aquaculture - University of Stirling
This workshop, organised by the Aquaculture Research Collaborative Hub (ARCH-UK), will provide Early Career Researchers with theoretical and practical know-how on proteomic analytical workflows and data analysis. We aim to teach and exchange knowledge about different applications of proteomics for aquaculture species. Issues relating to sample preparation, processing, data collection and analysis will be discussed, with hands-on experience of 2D-PAGE and MALDI-TOF MS.
Topics will include:
- Proteomic applications in aquaculture
- Analytical workflows available to study the proteome
- Advance techniques in Mass Spectrometry (MS) for the analysis of the proteome.
- Use of MALDI-TOF MS for the analysis of bacteria.
- Quantification strategies
- Impact of experimental factors on 2D gel analysis
- Data analysis and bioinformatics tools
Training will be given by biologists and mass spectrometrists from the Institute of Aquaculture, University Highlands and Islands, University of Aberdeen and Moredun Research Institute. The workshop is open to early career researchers (PhD to 10 years post-PhD) – up to 18 researchers will be selected to attend on the basis of a completed online application form.
