VIII Proteomics Workshop Skyline

The VIII Proteomics Workshop – Skyline will be held by the Brazilian Biosciences National Laboratory (LNBio) at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) Campus in Campinas-SP from 5th to 8th November 2018.

What is Skyline?

Skyline is a freely-available, open-source Windows client application for building Selected Reaction Monitoring (SRM) / Multiple Reaction Monitoring (MRM), Parallel Reaction Monitoring (PRM), DIA/SWATH and targeted DDA quantitative methods and analyzing the resulting mass spectrometer data. Its flexible configuration supports all molecules. It aims to employ cutting-edge technologies for creating and iteratively refining targeted methods for large-scale quantitative mass spectrometry studies in life sciences.

Why participate?

The course schedule will address emerging quantitative proteomics strategies.  This will include the use of Skyline in the context of different quantitative targeted workflows, assay development, generation of acquisition methods, processing of quantitative data sets, as well as using statistical and R software packages and tools in Skyline.  Data examples will cover high throughput SRM, MS1 Filtering, parallel reaction monitoring (PRM) and data-independent acquisition (DIA/SWATH).  General discussions and strategies of Quantification and statistical processing of acquired data will be discussed during the course.  

The instructor list includes international researchers and proteomics experts with a wealth of combined experience in targeted and quantitative proteomics, and both using and creating Skyline applications to meet the needs of his/hers research approach.

This meeting represents a training opportunity for current and future users of the  LNBio´s Mass Spectrometry Facility, and researchers in the area of proteomics and mass spectrometry. It also promotes the exchange of scientific information, as well as it motivates the formation of new research groups in the proteomics field.

Following the example of the previous editions, held in the last eight years, the workshop also promotes the exchange of new technologies, the closer relationship between Brazilian and international researchers and dissemination of knowledge in the scientific community.

How much will I invest?

The VIII Proteomics Workshop – Skyline registration fee is mandatory for all participants. The registration fee includes all lectures, conference material, coffee breaks, cocktails and lunches at the event will take place from the 5th until the 8th of November.

Details about the registration and the payment procedures are available in “Applications“.
