July 4th - 8th, 2016 Andrew Wiles Building (Oxford, UK)

Welcome

The Summer School will provide hands-on training in computational analysis of proteomics data generated by high-resolution mass spectrometry. This powerful technology is increasingly applied to systems-wide investigations of different aspects of cell biology. The practical part will enable participants to perform sophisticated quantitative data analysis in their own future research using the publicly available MaxQuant software (Cox, J. and Mann, M. (2008). MaxQuant enables high peptide identification rates, individualized p.p.b.-range mass accuracies and proteome-wide protein quantification. Nat Biotechnol 26(12):1367-72.).

Participants will be accepted based on a statement of motivation and a short CV required with the web application form. Early application is encouraged as previous Summer Schools have been heavily oversubscribed. Upon acceptance, the applicants will be notified by email. A poster session will take place during the Summer School and the accepted participants will be invited to submit abstracts on their current research.

A registration fee of €500 will be charged, which covers course materials, lunches and coffee breaks. Participants are responsible for their accommodation and travel expenses.
