Proteomics for Cell Biology

Proteomics for Cell Biology
The principal challenge of cell biology is to reveal the mechanisms underpinning the fundamental processes in cell function. To characterize these processes and to reveal their underlying mechanisms, one needs to evaluate the composition, localization of protein molecules. During the last decade, proteomics has demonstrated a significant impact on various aspects of cell biology research. High-throughput proteomics technologies capable of fast and accurate screening of thousands of proteins and characterizing post-translational modifications are found to be very effective for understanding disease mechanisms and therefore considered as valuable tools for cell biology research. This session will discuss the proteomics applications to answer key questions in cell biology.
