Training highly specialised bioinformaticians in proteomics
Mass spectrometry (MS) is used to quantify known materials and identify unknown compounds. Powerful enough to uncover the structure and chemical properties of different molecules, it is one of the main technologies in proteomics (the study of the proteins expressed in cell, organism or tissue). MS is fast evolving with new acquisition methods and high-content data structures that expand the applications of the technology, many of them relying on artificial intelligence. All these experimental possibilities require the development of new algorithms, and interactive and highly visual tools. Therefore, there is a need for more sufficiently trained bioinformaticians. The EU-funded PROTrEIN project is merging the academic and non-academic sectors by training a new generation of specialised bioinformaticians to tackle computational proteomics.
