International Workshop on MS-Based
Proteomics Bioinformatics and Health
Informatics
14.05.2014 – 16.05.2014, Izmir, Turkey
Scope
The International Workshop on MS-Based Proteomics, Bioinformatics, and Health Informatics has the
following specific aims:
We believe it is of utmost importance in the field of MS-based proteomics to ensure transfer of
knowledge among researchers from different disciplines. We aim to bring together analytical chemists
which can contribute new knowledge about peptide fragmentation which may improve the algorithms
developed by computer engineers and bioinformaticians. On the application side, biologists can raise
issues with current analysis and measurement protocols and can interact directly with developers to
establish new analysis pathways. Clinicians will learn the current state of the art in MS-based proteomics
and will be able to voice their specific needs.
We believe that improvements in basic research need to be brought to the wetlab and the bedside faster
than is possible currently. Therefore, we aim to bring together researchers from different backgrounds
and tie them together in a collaborative proteomics in network. We hope to foster the development of
collaborative grant applications to bilateral projects between Turkey and Germany, COST actions, and
FP7 grants.
The workshop is especially interested in (but not limited to) the following topics:
Advances in MS Instrumentation
Protein/ Peptide Fragmentation
Proteomics Data Analysis
Proteomics Data Storage and Visualization
Clinical/ Medical Proteomics
Effective Protein/Peptide Separation
Protein/ Peptide Extraction and Handling
Proteomics Data Pipelines
Applied Proteomics
Biomarkers and Disease Markers
With advances in MS instrumentation and new knowledge accumulating about fragmentation it is
possible to improve current algorithms for proteomics data analysis. Further knowledge about protein
separation and handling can further be fed into data analysis and influence storage, visualization and
conclusion drawn from experiments. This is especially important in applied proteomics, clinical
proteomics and biomarker discovery or application.
In conclusion, expertise from largely different fields is necessary to perform state of the art proteomics
research and therefore the scope is open to topics not directly fitting to areas specified above.
Workshop Specials
PhD Forum
Please bring your doctoral students and posters describing their intended work to the workshop. An ad
hoc committee will select the most interesting three posters and these students can present their work
in a short talk with subsequent discussion. Our hope is that this will help streamlining the thesis project
and help to identify potential problems.
Data Analysis
In case you have trouble with your MS/MS data, we would like to encourage you to bring the data to the
venue. Please contact Jens Allmer or Canan Has in the first day so that we can provide help (in
collaboration with bionia) with the identification or sequencing of difficult MS/MS spectra.
Venue
The workshop will take place in the Volley Hotel in Izmir, Turkey. The hotel is located in the heart of
Izmir, close to shopping, and leisure areas as well as very close to the fair and the sea
(http://www.tripadvisor.de/Hotel_Review-g298006-d3397043-Reviews-Volley_Hotel_IzmirIzmir_Izmir_Province_Turkish_Aegean_Coast.html#mtreview_143345294).
All workshop participants will have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Volley Hotel (included). Not all
participants can stay in the Volley Hotel as their space was limited. Within walking distance is the Ibis
Hotel where some of you will stay (http://www.tripadvisor.de/Hotel_Review-g298006-d4424177Reviews-Ibis_Izmir_Alsancak-Izmir_Izmir_Province_Turkish_Aegean_Coast.html).
