Let me invite you to the next Journal Club, that is scheduled on the Wednesday, November 18th, at 3 pm in the seminar room. In this club, basic principles and workflows of proteomics and model applications of proteomics in biomedical research will be presented. Proteomics is a study of the complete set of proteins expressed by an organism, tissue, or cell. Laboratory methods that include separation of proteins and mass spectrometry allow high throughput identification and quantitation of proteins in biological systems. Using untargeted proteomic approaches, functions of organs, cells or subcellular organelles in physiologic and pathophysiologic conditions can be studied. Results of proteomics can be used for characterization of mechanisms of pathologies, identifications of therapy targets and for searching of biomarkers.
