1st European Top-Down Proteomics Symposium – February 12th and 14th 2019, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France
This successful event, was jointly organized by Julia Chamot-Rooke (Institut Pasteur, TopSpec Consortium Partner) and The Consortium for Top-Down Proteomics.
The symposium was focused on top-down proteomics, the analysis of intact proteins and protein complexes using high-resolution mass spectrometry. The symposium was attended by several TopSpec Consortium Partners; Julia Chamot-Rooke, Alexander Makarov, Yury Tsybin and Jan Commandeur as well as representatives from Karolinska Institutet and Fasmatech.
During the meeting, world-leading experts in top-down proteomics (among those Dr. Chamot-Rooke, Dr. Makarov and Dr. Tsybin) were presenting advances in technologies and approaches within the field. A wide range of topics was covered including the latest developments in instrumentation, sample preparation both in denaturing and native conditions, intact protein fractionation/separation, data analysis as well as applications in life sciences and human health. Additionally, attendees were engaged in discussions on the future directions, challenges, and opportunities for top-down proteomics.
During one of the sessions Julia Chamot-Rooke announced the TopsSpec initiative.
