BBC Researchers to Attend Proteomics Course at Cold Spring Harbor

4/26/2012

Three members of the Biotechnology and Bioengineering Center will be attending the Proteomics course at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in July.

Kathleen Noon, Ph.D., Director of the Innovation Center Mass Spectrometry Facility, Catherine Kaczorowski, Ph.D., a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Greene Lab, and Dominique Carter, a graduate student in the Terhune Lab have been selected to attend this prestigious training opportunity. Only 17 applicants from across the country were accepted for this year’s training. 

Participants will have an intensive laboratory and lecture course with a focus on cutting-edge proteomic approaches and technologies. Participants will also gain practical experience purifying and identifying protein complexes and posttranslational modifications.

For all sections of the course, a strong emphasis will be placed on data analysis. A series of outside lecturers will discuss various proteomics topics including: imaging by mass spectrometry, de novo sequence analysis, advanced mass spectrometry methods, protein arrays, and functional proteomics. The aim of the course is to provide each student with the fundamental knowledge and hands-on experience necessary for performing and analyzing proteomic experiments. The overall goal is to train students to identify new opportunities and applications for proteomic approaches in their biological research.

Instructors for this summer’s Proteomics course are: Michelle Cilia, United States Department of Agriculture; Ileana Cristea, Princeton University; Darryl Pappin, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory; and Michael Bereman, University of Washington.
