Proteomics-course


This course is offered in affiliation with Zewail city of science and technology.

The course curriculum introduces the basic biology of proteins and the new advanced science called proteomics which aims at looking into the protein properties from a global perspective, i.e., not undertaking one protein at a time, but an entire set of proteins in the milieu. It will cover in detail the two major aspects of proteomics i.e., Gel-based proteomics and Mass spectrometry-based proteomics. The gel-based module will cover different techniques like SDS-PAGE, 2-DE, 2D-DIGE etc. These techniques had a major contribution in transition from protein chemistry to proteomics. Mass spectrometry, on the other hand, is an advanced analytical technique for accurate mass measurement. The course will also provide the basic knowledge about sample preparation, mass spectrometry workflow, different chromatography technologies and quantitative proteomics.
