The SEB and GARNet are organising an exciting conference entitled ‘From Proteome to Phenotype: role of post-translational modifications‘ at the University of Edinburgh in December this year.

The registration for this meeting is now open and the full programme is below.

In addition GARNet are hosting an extra workshop that is led by Dr Alex Jones (University of Warwick). This workshop is open to just 30 delegates who will be selected from interested delegates who have registered for the main meeting. There is the opportunity to apply to attend the workshop on the main registration page.

The workshop is intended to help early career researchers get started using proteomics. We will introduce sample preparation methods for common research goals such as “total” soluble protein extraction, enrichment of phosphopeptides and affinity enrichment of fusion proteins. We’ll discuss how best to approach proteomic service providers and the type of information and quality controls that can help to ensure your experiments succeed. After this introductory session we will have short talks from Hirofumi Nakagami (MPIPZ) on phosphoproteomics, Kathryn Lilley (Cambridge) on organelle proteomics and Piers Hemsley (James Hutton Institute) on SLIAC quantification and S-acylation. These talks will be interspersed with data analysis sessions and discussions regarding the troubleshooting of common errors. We will then consider how to evaluate and critically access mass spectrometric data. Our objective is to have a very open discussion throughout and delegates will be required requested to bring a laptop to work through provided examples and fully participate in discussions throughout the day.


In addition GARNet will provide up to ten £200 travel grants for early career researchers who have registered for the workshop before November 3rd.

Information about these grants can be found on the SEB website.
