Mass Spectrometry of Proteins (CHM283/BENG208) This course is offered in the spring quarter every year and contains a laboratory component in addition to the lecture series. The lectures will introduce the participants to the principals of protein mass spectrometry. In the laboratory section students will carry out experiments to determine the sequence of unknown proteins using ESI-QTOF instruments. In addition, experiments to determine post translational modification of proteins such as phosphorylation will be planned and carried out. Students will also get expert training on the operations of theESI-QTOF instrument.
