Proteomics is emerging as a powerful screening methodology for research in academic institutions and industry. A new generation of mass spectrometers with higher sensitivity and mass accuracy are now able to explore deeper into a proteome. Moreover, various methods are employed for quantitative analysis (such as iTRAQ, ICAT, SILAC, ExacTag, TMT, and spectral counting) that enable a researcher to measure comparative changes in a proteome for two or multiple samples simultaneously. All these developments have resulted in an increase in the data that is generated, which presents potential challenges for data processing of complex datasets.

This tutorial will offer an overview of proteomics workflow, with a focus on data analysis using various software programs available at MSI.
