FEBS Advanced Courses
Exploring the Human Proteome with Antibodies,
Transcriptomics and Mass Spectrometry"
21–26 June 2020 │ Stockholm, Sweden
The summer school is aimed at graduate students, post-docs, and young independent investigators who want to learn about new techniques to explore the proteins encoded by the human genome. The course will teach state-of-the-art analysis of the human proteins with a focus on antibody-based methods, transcriptomics and mass spectrometry. The course will have several daily lectures by experts in the field and this will be complemented with workshops in which the participants will annotate genes/proteins. Each participant will take part in an annotation effort with the aim to go through all experimental evidence of the respective protein and to evaluate the quality of the underlying data to score the evidence for protein profiles and functionality.
The course will be held at the Science for Life Laboratory located at the campus of Karolinska Institutet in proximity of the city center of Stockholm, hosting researchers in the field of molecular bioscience affiliated with Karolinska Institutet, Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. The center has infrastructures for life science, such as next generation sequencing, proteomics, single cell genomics, bioimaging, cryo-EM, protein expression, antibody engineering, bioinformatics and systems biology. Accommodation and meals will be provided by the organizers. Social evenings and joined meals will provide ample opportunities for informal exchange with lecturers. A limited number of FEBS Youth Travel Funds (YTF) Awards are available to support participation of early-career scientists in this event.
Deadline: 31st of March (29th of February for FEBS YTF grant application)
