Ad Hoc Learning of Fragmentation

by Zoltan Udvardy and Arslan Siraj

In our last Journal Club blog post, we presented ProteomicsML a web platform with tutorials for machine learning in the field of proteomics. Today, we stay on the spot with machine learning, however, on this occasion, we are presenting a new approach and model from Tom Altenburg et al. based on their article “Ad hoc learning […]

Recalling memories of our first in-person project meeting and SciComm training school in the beautiful city of colours ‘Barcelona’

by Ayesha Feroz and Alireza Nameni

Consortium meeting: After we ESRs had participated in the 13th International MaxQuant Summer School on Computational Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics, the opening dinner of the consortium meeting was the first time that all PROTrEIN members, incl. supervisors, actually met in person. The venue was amazingly beautiful and close to the sea. Where we all enjoyed a […]

Wikipedia Hackathon Experience

by Prajwal D'Souza and Zahra Elhamraoui

Most of us do research because we enjoy finding answers, solving problems and even helping people. But there is also a deep seated human tendency to leave a mark. Contribute to a bigger picture, graffiti on your neighbor’s wall, advance a field. This is probably why we write research papers. (Apart from begging for funding […]

Organising a large event as a first year PhD student – behind the scenes of the MaxQuant Summer School 2022

by Carlo De Nart

Starting with the premise that I have never organised such a big event in the past, getting actively involved in the organisation of the MaxQuant summer school (MQSS) has been a great opportunity to learn skills that are usually not directly related to pure research in science. The whole process of organising the summer school […]

New to machine learning in proteomics? Check out the ‘ProteomicsML’ web platform

by Aditi Sharma and Louise Buur

Machine learning approaches have become an established part of the mass spectrometry-based proteomics field in recent years. Several tools capable of predicting different aspects of peptide behavior have been developed and incorporated in data analysis workflows. These tools have proven to be beneficial in peptide and protein identification in proteomics experiments, and it is therefore […]

“Cross-Linking Mass Spectrometry: A sneak peak into its world!! ”

by Louise Buur and Ayesha Feroz

It has been a while since our official PROTrEIN launch. We’ve had monthly ESR meetings during this time, where the majority of us have been able to discuss more details about our projects and present them to the group. Several ESRs are working on developing new tools and data analysis pipelines to improve cross linking […]

A Systematic Review on Bioethics in Proteomics

by Aditi Sharma and Marc Pauper

The moment to begin exercising control over the rules and regulations that will bind us tomorrow is soon. The time to begin thinking and talking about them is now. In this month’s Journal Club, we have decided to step away from technical topics such the latest advances in proteomics methodologies. Instead, we will approach a more “philosophic” […]
