Proteomic Data Analysis – Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry (2-days online workshops)

The course is focused on the methods of identification and quantitative analysis of proteins, which are mainly based on the utilization of low-flow liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. After discussing methods of analysis and the labeling of proteins for their quantification, we will introduce you to the structure of proteomic data, methods of its preprocessing and the use of available tools supporting data processing. The course is designed for people who are just beginning their adventure in the field of biochemistry and bioinformatics, as well as for those who want to use their knowledge to explore the world of proteomic analysis at a higher level by learning secrets of the structure of data acquired experimentally, for biochemical or biomedical analysis. The training is a live workshop, with the possibility of mutual interaction between participants and the instructor,the opportunity to ask questions and check the progress of knowledge.

  • Fundamentals of mass spectrometry and chromatography in the context of proteomic analytics
  • Structure and processing of raw proteomic data, methods of protein identification and methods of quantitative data analysis
  • Working on amino acid sequences, building and managing sequence databases, analysis of post-translational modifications, etc.
  • Interpretation and preprocessing of LC-MS data: deconvolution, data normalization, scaling, sample alignment
  • Statistical methods used in proteomic analyses; univariate analysis – ANOVA, t-test, fold change, data correlations, etc.; multivariate analysis – PCA, PLS-DA, OPLS-DA, clustering, heatmaps, etc.
  • Biomarker analysis to identify differential proteomic features, e.g. ROC curves, classifiers, model building, etc.
  • Available web-based platforms for proteomic data processing and analysis
  • Functional analysis of proteomic data, integration with omics data obtained on other levels
