Registration is not yet open for this event. If you are interested in receiving more information please register your interest.

Course overview

This course will provide both theoretical and practical training in the use of quantitative proteomics approaches.  Participants will learn the principles of current methodologies including label-free, SILAC and TMT as well as targeted proteomics, and they will be trained in the use of bioinformatic tools for data analysis. 


This course is aimed at researchers who know the basics of proteomics and who want to get a deeper understanding of quantitative methodologies, and at those who are familiar with wet-lab proteomic experimentation but want to gain experience in bioinformatic data interpretation. To enter the course a basic understanding of mass spectrometry-based proteomics is beneficial.


  • The principles of proteome quantification by stable isotope labeling (SILAC and TMT), label-free, and targeted proteomics
  • Introduction how various types of mass spectrometers can be used for proteome quantification
  • Computer training sessions using software tools for the analysis of various quantitative proteomic data types
  • Lectures demonstrating the application of quantitative proteomics in biology, clinical research and drug discovery

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the principles and use cases of quantitative proteomic methods
  • Ability to design quantitative proteomic experiments, including selection of the most appropriate hardware and software
  • Ability to analyse quantitative proteomic data by various software tools

EMBL wishes to warn sponsors of EMBL conferences and courses of fraudulent schemes purporting to offer sponsorship opportunities on behalf of EMBL or affiliated with EMBL officials. One current scam campaign of which we are aware is conducted using the name ‘Judy Eastman’ (judy@gopcontact.a2hosted.com) and entails approaches to sponsors offering sponsorship opportunities on EMBL’s behalf. Please be kindly advised that all relevant communication regarding sponsorship of EMBL conferences, symposia and courses is handled by EMBL directly and is sent from an official EMBL account. EMBL does not work with any external providers on sponsorship acquisition.

Please also note that:

  • EMBL never provides attendee lists for purchase. Any offers of such are fraudulent.
  • EMBL will never call or email you to ask for your credit card details or to request a payment.
  • All payments are on invoice.

Suspicious communications purportedly from, for or on behalf of EMBL should be reported to EMBL at the following email address sponsorship@embl.de.
