Proteomics Center Workshop
572 Bond LSC

The Proteomics Center is adding a new instrument this spring! It is a tims-ToF Pro that couples trapped ion mobility with a quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer. This is a high speed instrument ideal for shotgun proteomics and exploring post-translational modification of proteins. Come listen to Conor Mullens, who will discuss the new instrument, its capabilities, and potential applications. Light refreshments will be provided (sponsored by Bruker). 

RSVP encouraged to Michael Greenlief ( to help estimate refreshments.
