Targeted proteomics: Experimental design and data analysis

Different targeted proteomics strategies have recently emerged in the field of proteomics that enable the detection and quantification of a predetermined subset of proteins with a high degree of sensitivity and reproducibility across many samples. This EMBO Practical Course aims to fill in the gap between theory and the actual implementation of the targeted proteomics workflow, so that by the end of the week the students have the necessary know-how to implement the targeted proteomics workflows in their own research laboratories. The course will offer a daily keynote talk by a high-profile speaker introducing the topic of the day with examples of his/her own research, followed by "Practical demonstrations" (20%), and "Practical work and exercises" (40%) that will cover the complete workflow for experimental design and data analysis of targeted proteomics assays (i.e. targeted method design, optimization of instrument settings, manual and automated quantitative analysis, and statistical analysis of the data). Moreover, these sessions will be followed by "Poster Sessions" (10%) and "Social Events" to introduce informal discussion tables to adapt the technology to each participant's particular interests.

Selection criteria

In case more than 25 applicants register for this practical course, the following criteria will be applied to select the participants:

  • Each applicant will be requested to submit a short abstract summarizing his/her project and how SRM might be useful in the future. Abstracts will be used to assess which applicants could benefit the most.
  • Each applicant will be requested to upload a motivation letter (in the Document upload section).
  • Each applicant will be expected to have a basic prior knowledge in MS-based proteomics.
  • Fair distribution of applicants from different countries and scientific institutes
  • Fair gender distribution.
  • Fair background distribution: students, postdocs, scientists and industry participants.

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts must be submitted online no later than 04 June 2018. Abstracts must be written in English. Submission of an abstract does not ensure an acceptance to the course. Abstracts should include a title, authors, author's institution addresses and body.

Bibliographic references should only be used if quoted in the abstract body.

If abstract is not submitted, application form will not be considered.

Motivation Letter

For selection purposes, please attach a motivation letter (in the Document upload section). The motivation letter should include:

  • Your relevant skills, experience and qualifications showing why you would be suitable for the course
  • And you should explain why would you like to attend the practical course, including what you can contribute and how you think you will benefit from the course

Poster specifications

The course includes several poster sessions in which participants will explain their research projects. Each participant will be provided with a A0 poster board to display their poster.

The poster board surface area is approx. 90 cm wide and 120 cm high. This is a portrait/vertical format. Materials should be printed on thin poster paper or cardboard, anything heavier will not stay in position. You will be provided with velcro tabs and pins to use for adhering your poster to the board. All participants will present their poster.

Travel grants

A limited number of travel grants are available for participants. Applicants do not need to apply separately for travel grants for this event but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered for a travel grant. Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizer who will notify all eligible participants. More information is available at EMBO Travel Grants' page.

Additonal Information

Participants will be provided accommodation in double shared rooms with other participants in the course (the organizers will prepare the rooming list based on gender).
