The Final Programme for the meeting is now available for download.

Meeting Focus

Protein identification and characterisation was the major thrust of the initial phase of proteomics. Quantitation, however, is pivotal to understanding the differences between cells and organisms under different physiological and pathophysiological conditions, and is an essential prerequisite for a true systems-level understanding of biological processes. The major focus of this meeting is recent strategies for qualitative description and quantitation of proteomes, and the novel informatic tools enabling their application to the discovery of new biomarkers, the elucidation of biological function, and the construction of cellular signalling and interaction networks. Sessions will cover the application of these technologies to proteomic research from prokaryotes to plants, animals, human and clinical studies.

Sessions and Topics:

  • Quantitation by Labelling
  • Label-free Quantitation
  • Modern Array Technology
  • Advances in Bioinformatics
  • Animal Proteomics
  • Clinical Proteomics
  • Plant Proteomics
  • Protein Dynamics
  • Protein Interactions
  • Early Stage Career Investigator Award
  • Oral Communications
  • Posters
