Quantitative Proteomics

22—23 May 2017

University of Liverpool in London, London, UK

This training event will continue the format of previous Training Events, and will use a mixture of lectures and small group teaching to achieve a high level of awareness of the issues and problems inherent in quantitative proteomics. The course will run over two days (with a problem solving reception on the evening of the first day, followed by a course dinner).
