Institute for Integrative Genome Biology

Proteomics Core



Description —

A free monthly one-day workshop is available on the first Tuesday of each month to students, postdocs, technicians and faculty members who want to use the resources of the Noel T. Keen Hall W. M. Keck Proteomics Facility in their research. Training includes a general lecture, an operational demonstration and time for individual practice on the equipment.  Session topics cover the proteomics applications of the MALDI-MS/MS system (Q-STAR, ABI). Enrollment is restricted to four people per session to allow sufficient hands-on activity. Participants are encouraged to bring examples of their own experimental needs, to discuss the feasibility of different approaches, and to note any particular experimental problems or questions they would like addressed.

Trainees will gain operational skills in using the MALDI-MS/MS and database-dependent tools to study cellular proteins with both PMF and MS/MS analyses of proteolytic peptides. Trainees will be able to use their newly acquired MS skills to identify proteins from a variety of systems including mammalia, plants, insects, and yeast. In addition to the usage in protein identification, the Q-STAR system can also be a choice for studies of protein complexes, protein modifications, and protein-protein interactions. This workshop is intended to help trainees become independent experimentalists using the proteomics approach.

To Request or Enroll in Training

Please visit the IIGB Calendar for a schedule of upcoming Proteomics one-day workshops and other seminars. To register for scheduled workshops, please respond to email announcements.  All training is offered at no charge, but an FAU is required for future billing of equipment use. You will be contacted by the Proteomics Academic Coordinator with confirmation of enrollment.
