Welcome to The Proteomics Unit

What is Proteomics?

Proteomics is the term that describes a multitude of tools and expertise used primarily to profile and identify proteins of interest in any organism at a large scale. Proteins of interests include biomarkers for certain diseases or physiological/developmental status. For example, one could use proteomics to investigate effects of pathogens on organ protein expression levels and patterns.

This information could be used to identify targets/strategies for the improvement of pathogen resistance by plants and animals.
  • In addition to current 2D PAGE, Imaging, Picking and MALDI-TOF MS Facilities: 
  • Multi-purpose Tandem Mass Spectrometry workstation 
  • Integrated High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) 
  • Sample handling robotics for high throughput workflow 
  • Mass measurements for various post-translational modifications in specific amino acid residues, including phosphorylation and glycosylation. 
  • The system also offers MALDI "histoproteome" imaging for in situ profiling of intact proteins in plant and animal tissues. 
  • Metabolite ID and profiling? MALDI microbe bio-typing
