About the workshop

Studying biological systems at the protein level is an important complement to investigations at the genome, transcriptome or metabolome level because it is the proteins that execute and control many if not most biological processes. Using high performance proteomics, it is now possible to study protein expression and regulation on a systems wide scale. The technological improvements made over the past five years, will soon allow measuring all of the proteins and many of their modifications, quantitatively all of the time.

Although proteomic technologies have become an integral part of modern life science research, there still is an immense shortage of scientists skilled in this art and maybe an even greater lack of widespread knowledge as to what proteomics can accomplish today. Hence, there is a great need for educating the next generation of scientists in this state-of-the-art scientific and technical discipline. This EMBO Worskhop is designed to provide graduate students and young postdoctoral scientists from academia and industry with insights into state-of-the-art proteomic technologies and applications in the life sciences. Through extensive interaction with speakers, we provide the participants with an international network of top scientist, from which they will benefit the rest of their careers.
