    Proteomics Summerschool

    Institute of Microbiology

    Ernst-Moritz-Arndt University of Greifswald

    On behalf of the HUPO Initiative on Model Organism Proteomes (iMOP) and the North German Center for Microbial Genomics (NZMG) we would like to announce the first “International Proteomics Summerschool Greifswald”, which will take place from the 15th to the 19th of July 2013.

    The one-week training course, covering gel-based and gel-free proteomics approaches as well as data analyses, integration and visualization, will include theoretical and laboratory sections. Detailed information is provided in the attached flyer.

    With best regards,

    Dörte Becher & Kathrin Riedel.

    Report iMOP meeting 2012, Kiel, Germany

    The 2012 annual meeting of the Initiative on Model Organism Proteomes (iMOP) took place on March, 26/27th at the University of Kiel, Germany. Twelve researchers working in different fields of model organisms related proteomics attended this meeting.

    Major issues discussed at the meeting were future activities of the initiative and plans for the distribution of proteomics knowledge within model organism communities. Further, in the context of the fact that humans live in communities with microorganisms, which outperform the number of human cells by a factor of more than 10.000, the importance of model organism proteomes and its interaction with human cells was discussed. Plants are interesting model systems but also contribute to the interaction of mammalian (human) and its microbiome; therefore plant proteomics was identified to be an essential factor.

    A major outcome of the meeting was to establish one-day courses for advanced PhD-students in future proteomics conferences, e.g. the EuPA conferences in 2013 and 2014. Further, at HUPO 2012 in Boston, an iMOP session will be organized.

    Together with the lively and fruitful discussion about the scopes of iMOP and organizational issues, five scientific presentations were given, spanning model organism projects ranging from worms to plants and covering aspects of bioinformatics.
