Pre-Conference Workshop

The following optional pre-conference workshop will be hosted by the conference sponsor Springer Nature and will take place before the EMBL–Wellcome Genome Campus Conference: Proteomics in Cell Biology and Disease Mechanisms

Navigating the data flood:
tools for finding and evaluating proteomics protocols

Date: Thursday, 7 March 2019, from 11:30 to 12:15
Venue: Courtyard room A + B, EMBL Advanced Training Centre

Presenter: Dr. Madhuri Cherukumilli, Product Manager, Springer Nature Experiments



The past decade has seen proteomics–based techniques applied in various research settings such as the identification of diagnostic markers, vaccine production, and drug response studies, all of which have increased our understanding in cell and cancer biology. However, monitoring the constant advancements in various methods, protocols and techniques like mass spectrometry, protein microarrays, and ribosomal profiling remains a challenging task. Obtaining the most relevant and recent information helps researchers to plan efficiently and save time and resources.

Springer Nature addresses the challenge of finding and evaluating protocols and methods in areas like biochemistry and proteomics with a new, unique research solution: Springer Nature Experiments. Artificial intelligence and machine learning have been applied to create a platform dedicated to faster and better in searching for experimental procedures. Springer Nature Experiments is designed to seamlessly extract results from one of the largest and highest quality protocols and methods collections, which includes Nature Methods, Nature Protocols, and Springer Protocols. This workshop focuses on Springer Nature Experiments and how its unique features and technologies such as knowledge graphs, smart article indexing, and customized knowledge models can be used to support proteomics research and more.

All conference participants will receive an email with a registration link. 

Participation in the workshop is first come - first served.
