Methods for large-scale quantitative proteomics in systems biology
Elyse Freiberger of the Coon Lab likes high quality data so much and knows how important it is for scientists that she’s spent her Ph.D. working to get it. Specifically, she works in proteomics, the study of all of the proteins that can be expressed in an organism. Through multiple collaborations she’s refined the process of using mass spectrometry to collect large amounts of data on a proteome and processing and analyzing that data to get a holistic view of an entire proteome. This can lead to new and unique discoveries when facing big systems biology questions. For example, she’s worked with the Attie Lab to look into how genetic variation effects the pancreatic islet proteome in mice.
To learn more about her work, attend her Thesis Review at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 21 in Room 1441 in the Genetics-Biotechnology Center.
