Title:“Mass spectrometry-based proteomics: challenges and opportunities”
Abstract: Mass spectrometry is the technique of choice to study proteins in a high throughput fashion. And while the final outputs that you might be presented looks like a typical omics table, with assayed proteins along the row and samples along the columns, the characteristics of mass spectrometry result in some interesting features. In my talk, I will describe how mass spectrometry is used to identify and quantify proteins and highlight some important features of the acquisition process. I will then present some recent applications of mass spectrometry-based proteomics and conclude with challenges and opportunities.
