Proteomics

Services

The overall goal of the Proteomics Core Facility is to make advanced mass spectrometry instruments, expertise, and methods for proteome analysis available to all investigators.

Services include the following:

  • Protein Identification
  • Characterization of post-translational modifications
  • Quantitation of protein expression
    • Quantitative Top-Down Proteomics using 2-D gels
    • Quantitative Bottom-Up Proteomics using LC-MS
    • Experimental Design for Quantitative Proteomics
    • Data analysis
  • Bioinformatics analysis
  • Training
  • Independent use
  • Interactome analysis
  • Structural analysis (protein footprinting)
