Targeted Proteomics Course with world-class lecturer team is widely welcomed and has been successfully held in America, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Brazil, India and Japan. This is the first time that the course has come to China!
The course will last for 4 days and senior experts in proteomics have been invited, including Prof. Ruedi Aebersold, Prof. Michael MacCoss, Dr. Brendan MacLean, Dr. Christina Ludwig, Dr. Ben Collins, Dr. Yansheng Liu,Dr.Wenguang Shao, Dr. Tujin Shi, Dr. Chuanqi Zhong and Dr. Hu Zhou to give keynote speeches and lectures. The course will provide researchers with the latest technologies and in-depth exchange opportunities.
The lecturer team will give lectures in Chinese as much as possible, and Chinese version of courseware and material are available to guarantee the course quality. Meanwhile the number of participants is restricted to 50. This unmissable excellent course is especially designed for Chinese students and scholars.
This course aims to build a bridge between theory and practice of targeted proteomics, and to assist researchers in establishing process and methodology of targeted proteomics in their own laboratories. In-depth discussion on first-class technology and software, such as SRM, PRM, SWATH and DIA are involved. Senior experts in proteomics will introduce different topics daily and offer sufficient time for “practical operation and practice”, which bases on Skyline and focuses on a complete workflow involving experimental design and data analysis that points at targeted proteomics (targeted method design, optimization of instrument parameter setting, manual / automatic quantitative analysis and data statistic analysis).
The course is undertaken by Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica.

Classical targeted proteomics refers to selecting and detecting signal of target protein via SRM、MRM and novel PRM targeted proteomic technologies while neglecting irrelevant signal, thus enabling high specific and high accurate quantification of target protein. But it is restricted to small-scale data acquisition and analysis.
With advancement in resolution and scanning speed of mass spectrometer in recent years, Data-independent acquisition (DIA) and Sequential Windowed Acquisition of all Theoretical fragment ions (SWATH) has become one of the most popular acquisition methods. Analysis of SWATH / DIA data realizes the large-scale popularization of targeted proteomics.
The 2018 Targeted Proteomics Course aims to deepen comprehension towards targeted proteomics via establishment and application of SRM/MRM, PRM, DIA/SWATH, as well as in-depth discussion on application of Skyline to data analysis of targeted proteomics, thus better applying targeted proteomics to biomarker discovery, drug research and design, and study of life science.
