Microbiome research is rapidly increasing. Meta-Omics data provide insights into microbial community influencing human health and biochemical cycle. Metaproteomics focusses on proteins representing the expressed genes and functions. In contrast to metagenomics or metatranscriptomics, the extraction and the analysis of proteins from human or environmental samples is challenging.
The de.NBI course on Applied Metaproteomics trains the participants to apply a complete workflow starting from design of experiments via sample preparation to measurement and bioinformatics analysis of high-resolution MS data. Maximum 10 participants are strongly encouraged to analyze their own samples to start their own metaproteomics project.
The workshop takes place at chair of bioprocess engineering at Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. The team of microbial communities head by Dr. Dirk Benndorf is well experienced in metaproteomics. The samples will be measured on newly purchased timsTOF Pro MS. His group devellopes the MetaProteomAnalyzer service facilitating the analysis of of metaproteomic data. The provision of service is supported by the German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure - de.NBI.
