We are pleased to announce a course jointly organized by SIB Training
and CUSO / Staromics doctoral program and entitled:
*"Proteogenomics and Immunopeptidomics"*
Proteogenomics is an area of research at the interface of proteomics and
genomics. It can be used to improve gene models, to discover new protein
coding regions, and to obtain information about which gene variants are
translated to proteins. Immunopeptidomics studies the generation and
presentation of immune peptides, which are of particular importance for
immunotherapies. Both proteogenomics and immunopeptidomics rely on
tandem mass spectrometry to identify and quantify peptides or proteins.
Rapid advances in DNA and RNA sequencing methods and bioinformatics made
it possible to build protein sequence databases customized for a
specific sample. In combination with tandem mass spectrometry and MS/MS
search software it provides a powerful tool to study genetic variants.
This 3-day course will be held at the *University of Lausanne, 29
November – 1^st December 2017*.
Further information, such as the target audience, learning objectives,
prerequisites and registration, is available at SIB
