This year we will hold a day practical workshop that will focus on “What and How” of proteomics, structural mass spectrometry, protein-protein interactions and metabolomics. Each topic will cover a diverse array of applications and will provide toolbox for experiment design, sample preparation and data analysis. The workshop is divided into three parallel sessions 1) basic proteomics, 2) advanced computational mass spectrometry, and 3) metabolomics.

The workshop is designed for two diverse type of groups 1) researchers and students that have no or little background in mass spectrometry, 2) researchers that use MS daily but would like to learn more about applications, data analysis and computational methods.
