Proteomics is a fundamental step on systems biology, allowing the holistic comprehension of organisms and their interactions with other organisms and with their habitat.
The course will provide hands-on experience on proteomic experiments and fundamental knowledge for the analysis of results.
Focus will be on protein extraction methods, mono and bi-dimensional electrophoresis, functional proteomics, image analysis and trouble shooting. A major attention will be given to applications in microbiology, with emphasis in host-pathogen interactions, antibiotic resistance and microbial fitness.
Language will be English. A maximum of 20 students will be admitted. This course combines lectures and practical work.
