Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism and Mutation Analysis – and Its Impact on Personalized Medicine
- Broadcast Date:
Tuesday, December 11, 2012
11 AM ET
REGISTRATION IS FREE
This webinar will focus on the analysis of single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and protein mutations with high-resolution, accurate mass instruments. Two expert panelists, Dr. Pierre Thibault, Research in Immunology and Cancer, University of Montreal, and Dr. Paul M. Thomas, Northwestern University, will provide different perspectives on the study of protein variants. Dr. Thomas will examine the role of top-down proteomics while Dr. Thibault will focus on MHC peptide immunotherapy.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Learn how top-down proteomics is applied to the analysis of intact proteins to examine the genetic and post-translational variation occurring naturally in human proteins.
- Learn about advances in mass spectrometry that facilitated the large-scale analyses of the immunopeptidome from mouse and human cells to profile its dynamic changes and identify tumor-associated antigens and polymorphic variants that can be use for immunotherapy.
- Learn how the Thermo Scientific Orbitrap Elite MS is impacting top-down and bottom-up proteomics.
