AbstractProtein Analysis by Mass Spectrometry
The following topics will be covered: basics of biological mass spectrometry, including instrumentation, data collection and data analysis; applications to protein identification and characterization; sample preparation methods; proteomics strategies; and quantitative analysis.
ObjectiveHow to prepare a protein sample for MS analysis (trypsin digestion, C18 clean-up)
Principles of data acquisition LC-MS (QTOF and/or Ion Trap instruments)
Perform qualitative proteomic analysis (protein identification with Mascot and/or Sequest Softwares)
Perform quantitative proteomic analysis (label-free and labeled analyses)
Analyze/interpret the data to find up/down regulated proteins
