MBV9480 - Proteomics Basic Course
The aim of this course is to provide an introduction to basic proteomics techniques.
After successfully completing this course, you will have the following competences:
- Practical and theoretical knowledge in proteomics.
- Knowledge about common workflows for the large-scale analysis of proteins.
- Fundamental knowledge about quantification of proteomes.
- Understanding how to identify proteins from mass spectrometry data.
- Able to evaluate MS/MS data including de novo sequencing.
- Insight into the analysis of post-translational modifications and protein-protein interactions.
- On-hands experience with in-gel digestions, LC-ESI and MALDI mass spectrometry and protein identification.
PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.
If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.
PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.
You apply for the course by sending an e-mail to Bernd Thiede, who is responsible for the course. Please include your full name, birth date, affiliation and information about whether or not you are part of the BioStruct research school. If there are more applicants than places, BioStruct members will have priority to 80% of the places.
If you are not a PhD candidate at The Faculty of Science and Mathematics at The University of Oslo, you must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.
Formal prerequisite knowledge
Master of Science, M.D. or admission to the Faculty of Medicine's Medical Student Research Program ("Forskerlinjen").
