Increasing proteoform level insight with quantitative Top-Down proteomics using Proteome Discoverer 2.5 software
Thermo Scientific: Virtual Software Workshops
Proteins exist in many similar but unique molecular entities known as proteoforms. In practice, important protein targets are often not amongst the most abundant proteoform. Traditional digest based analyses further complicate this problem because peptide level evidence is incomplete, resulting in inferred protein group identities. What can we do when peptides do not answer our question?
There will be a special focus on analyzing top-down proteomics data with Thermo Scientific ProSightPD 4.0 software in Proteome Discoverer software.
Presenter: Mick Greer, PhD (Software Product Manager, Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry, Thermo Fisher Scientific)
Dr. Mick Greer earned his BS in Chemistry Drexel University ’12 and his PhD in Analytical Chemistry UT Austin ’18. Mick’s PhD project involved developing proteomics methods utilizing a novel photo-dissociation method (UVPD). The last three years of my PhD I spent working on Top-Down method development using UVPD and other activation methods. In his current role Mick is the product manager for Thermo Scientific Top Down proteomics ProSight PD software.
