Mass spectrometry data analysis

This course focuses on protein/peptide MS data analysis and peptide identification. MS2 spectra will be analyzed by hand to show and understand the concept of peptide fragmentation. We will discuss existing analysis software (database search engines, analysis frameworks) and apply them to example datasets.

The course is aimed at colleagues who will soon start or have already started to work in mass spectrometry data analysis.

Instructor: Viktoria Dorfer (FH Hagenberg).



This is a "hands-on" course. Please bring a (preferably Windows) laptop with you. The necessary software and data files will be distributed before the course, some installation is necessary.
