Translation Workflow Development using Mass Spectrometry

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
Mary Lopez, Ph.D. discusses translational workflows developed by the BRIMS center, designed to address all aspects of proteomics, from biomarker discovery to developing more routine applications using mass spectrometry. The workflows can be divided into two different types-- discovery and targeted. High-resolution mass spectrometry instruments are used during the discovery phase to analyze complex biological samples in an effort to uncover new biomarkers by looking at differential abundance....
