Ruhr University Bochum, 44801 Bochum

Contents:
In this one day course we will show some of BioInfra.Prot's tools provided by de.NBI, namely “PIA - Protein Inference Algorithms”, “PAA - Protein Array Analyzer” and CalibraCurve. Besides the tool based sessions we offer a "bring your own data" session to discuss and try out analysis strategies of your own special data. PIA allows to inspect and combine the results of proteomics search engines. The main focus lays on the integrated inference algorithms for identification and quantification purposes. PAA is an R/Bioconductor software package providing a comprehensive workflow for protein microarray data analysis, especially aimed at biomarker discovery. CalibraCurve is a tool intended for the generation of calibration curves in the context of MRM (targeted proteomics) experiments. Such calibration curves are necessary for the selection of suitable transitions.

Learning goals:
Attendees of the course will learn how to use the tools PIA, PAA and CalibraCurve effectively for their daily proteomics tasks.

Prerequisites:
This course is for all researches in the field of proteomics. The attendees should have basic knowledge of LC-MS proteomics, but no prior bioinformatics skills are required. Basic knowledge of how to analyse LC-MS data are sufficient. Attendees are required to bring their own laptops. If this not possible or laptops have very low computing capacities, please contact the organizers.
