BIOS9980 – Proteomics Basic Course
Changes in the course due to coronavirus
Autumn 2020 we plan for teaching and examinations to be conducted as described in the course description and on semester pages. However, changes may occur due to the corona situation. You will receive notifications about any changes at the semester page and/or in Canvas.
Spring 2020: Teaching and examinations was digitilized. See changes and common guidelines for exams at the MN faculty spring 2020.
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 and quantify 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, protein identification and quantification, and functional data analysis.
Admission to the course
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.
- 5 credits overlap with MBV9480 – Proteomics Basic Course (continued).
- Lectures - 2 hours every day for 5 days
- Laboratory - 3 hours every day for 5 days
The course is given as a one-week intensive course and consists of a series of lectures followed by 3 hours training in lab. each day.
Both the lectures and the practical training in the lab are mandatory. As the teaching involves laboratory and/or field work, you should consider taking out a separate travel and personal risk insurance. Read about your insurance cover as a student.
- Oral examination.
If more than 10 students attend the course it will be offered as a three hour written exam.
