Today's Workshops

Jun 17, 2014

Today’s workshops cover a variety of topics, including protein analysis, ‘omics, data analysis, a few specific areas of application, and career development.

Several workshops deal with protein analysis, including those on the characterization of biologics by mass spectrometry, the “galaxy” framework for biological MS informatics: practical tips for software developers and users; and current trends, gaps, and needs in workflows for absolute protein quantitation by LC–MS.

Two relate to ‘omics topics, including sessions on using mass spectrometry to characterize the exposome and its impact on human health; and quantitative glycomics.

Workshops on data analysis include one on data-independent acquisition and another on mechanisms to process data given software restrictions across vendors.

Other topics cover the use of mass spectrometry in various application areas, including polymers and materials; flavor, fragrance and foodstuffs; and art, cultural heritage, and natural history.

Other workshops relate to career development. One workshop provides tips for effective PowerPoint presentations. And the young mass spectrometrists interest group asks you to “get ready to become a rising star” in MS.

Lastly, the ion-trap interest group is holding a discussion on the question, Have quadrupole ion traps passed their prime time?

All workshops are held on level 3, from 5:45 to 7:00 pm, with light refreshments available.
