Proteomics and Metabolomics for Infectious Diseases

Proteomics and Metabolomics for Infectious Diseases
During the last few decades, the impact of infectious diseases throughout the world has been severe and remains a major health concern globally. Despite advances in the research, there is a substantial knowledge gap in our understanding of the molecular basis of the infectious diseases. The availability of genomic and transcriptomic information has helped our understanding of these disease pathogenesis at certain extent but not addressing key biological questions. During the last decade, proteomic and metabolomics technologies, particularly mass spectrometry (MS) based proteomics and metabolomics have provided increasingly in-depth information of the host cells during the progression on an infection. In this session, the speakers will address and convey the applications of proteomics and metabolomics for understanding the diverse range of changes occurring in host cell composition upon pathogen infections. They will also cover other aspects of the proteomics and metabolomics related to infectious diseases.
