Quantitative proteomics and data analysis

26—27 March 2012

Queen Hotel, Chester, UK

A Biochemical Society Training Course


Scientific background:
The Training Course will focus on issues and developments in quantitative proteomics. The aim is to introduce relative newcomers to the field to quantitative strategies, followed by round-table problem-solving discussions of experimental and informatics solutions.


  • Relative and absolute quantification
  • Label-free and labeled mediated approaches
  • Informatics for quantification
  • Data standards
  • Quantitative statistics and experimental design

Training Course format:
There will be a few introductory presentations to set the scene and define the issues. For the main part of the course, there will be individual tables with small groups of attendees, addressing specific issues such as label-free quantification, absolute quantification with stable isotopes, SILAC, MaxQuant, quantification in MASCOT and more. Each participant will be able to choose three, one hour round table sessions. The final part of the course will be an open discussion about experimental design and quantification strategies. Each participant will receive a disk of e-resources (PDFs, software, etc).

Application deadline: 13 February 2012.

Application is now closed. If you would like to apply to attend the workshop please contact the conference office.


Approved by the Society of Biology for the purpose of CPD, this event may be counted as 42 CPD credits.


This training course is followed by the ProteoMMX meeting.
