Sample preparation and instrumental strategies for in-depth studies of complex mammalian proteomes
Being able to analyze and understand the complex array of proteins in the human body could greatly aid researchers in many areas. Evgenia Shishkova of the Coon Lab spent her Ph.D. making advances in this process. Using mass spectrometry — a technique used to weigh molecules — she’s developing a better method to analyze complex mammalian proteomes because the methods used on simpler organisms like yeast don’t capture the complexity of human proteins.
Her work has brought on many collaborations, including with the Xu Lab in the Department of Oncology and IPiB’s Pagliarini Lab to work on the biological applications of her method. To learn more about her studies attend her Thesis Review at 1:15 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 11 in Room 1111 of the Genetics-Biotechnology Building.
