Practical Proteomics 5-9 January 2015 / 2D Gel Electrophoresis 8-9 January 2015

Monday 5 January 2015, 9.30AM to Fri 9 Jan 2015

The Original Practical Proteomics Course

Our Practical Proteomics Course has been running since 2003 and has been attended by over 100 delegates from many different countries.  It is an intensive, week-long course that covers all aspects of modern proteomics in 15 lectures, three workshops, two demonstrations, and a wet lab practical.  A shorter, two-day course is available for people interested mainly in 2D gel electrophoresis-based proteomics and protein identification my mass spectrometry.

The course is taught in the Department of Biology by members of its Technology Facility and by staff from the Department of Chemistry. The University is extremely well equipped for proteomic work, having spent over £1M on equipment for the Technology Facility's Proteomics Laboratory, and another £1.6M last year for mass spectrometers for the Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry.

Bespoke Training

In addition to organized courses, we can provide bespoke training in all areas of modern proteomic research. Periods from a few days to weeks can be spent in our laboratory learning techniques such as mass spectrometry, LC-MS, and stable-isotope labelling iTRAQ™, and label-free quantification. Please enquire if you have specific training needs.
