About the Practical Course

Different targeted proteomics strategies have emerged in the field of proteomics that enable the detection and quantification of subsets 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 different targeted proteomics workflows in their own research laboratories. The course will offer a daily keynote talk, followed by lectures and practical demonstrations, as well as practical work and exercises 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, the course will host virtual poster sessions and social events to introduce informal discussion and adapt the technology to each participant's particular interests.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops

EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timeliness, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be female).

Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.

Selection criteria

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

  • Each applicant will be requested to submit a short abstract summarizing his/her project and how targeted proteomics might be useful in the future.

Abstracts will be used to assess which applicants could benefit the most.

  • 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 15 September 2021. Abstracts must be written in English. Submission of an abstract does not ensure the acceptance for the course. Abstracts should include a title, authors, authors’ institution addresses and body.

Bibliographic references should only be used if quoted in the abstract body. The body of the abstract should not exceed 4,000 characters (including spaces) or 500 words in English.

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

Poster specifications

The course includes several virtual poster sessions in which participants will explain their research projects. The poster will need to be send to the CRG Training Unit in advanced, further details will be given to the selected participants. All participants will present their poster.
