Mass spectrometry data processing - postponed
02 June 2020
Please watch the following video playlist by Lennart Martens, it is the preparation for the training: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXxp6nsBenSX_W8DiOocKJ0laNauYNdYl
In this training session we start by reviewing the types of mass spectrometer, and what the properties of their output data are. Out of our understanding of the data, we learn to extract meaningful interpretations.
- Obtain a good understanding of the origins and properties of mass spec data
- Obtain an understanding of the processing of mass spec data, aimed at identifying and quantifying peptides and proteins
- Gain sufficient understanding of the software tools and database used, and of the issues and caveats involved, to critically analyse and assess results from mass spectrometry based proteomics experiments
A basic understanding of mass spectrometry as applied to peptides and proteins is required by the participants.
Dr. Lennart Martens is Professor of Systems Biology at Ghent University, and Group Leader of the Computational Omics and Systems Biology (CompOmics) group at VIB.
Lieven Clement is Associate Professor of Statistical Genomics at Ghent University.

You can park your car on the Tech Lane Ghent Science park in the open car parks (no barriers), like the one in front of the iGent tower across the road. These car parks have Dutch signs which read "Parkeren uitsluitend met vignet! (overtreding = wielklem)”. This means you should only park there if you have a valid car park permit. You can request such a permit by sending an email to your contact person at iGent. The permit is only valid for a single day, and will need to be placed visibly behind the car's windscreen.
