The start of 2012 has been a very busy time for us in terms of organising our attendance at conferences which are taking place all over the world. I have been making final arrangements for events being held over the next couple of months, and booking up meetings for later in 2012.
Our first conference in Europe this year is the Joint Conference of Polish MS Society and German MS Society 4th – 7th March. Usually the German MS Society (DGMS) have their own annual meeting, but this year they are having a joint meeting with their Polish counterparts in Poznan, Poland. We will be represented by Leo Pollack and Agnès Corbin, so please visit us to see the latest developments in the Progenesis software range, including a preview of the next Progenesis CoMet release.
Following on from this, our next conference is across the Atlantic in Orlando, Florida. ABRF 2012 – Learning from Biomolecules, The Technology Behind the Story is being held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, March 17th – 20th. The focus of the meeting is the cutting edge technologies that drive scientific research, and how to implement these techniques in core facilities.
One of the highlights of the meeting for us is the T5 Tutorial Session – Overcoming Problems with Experiment Design for Quantitative Proteomics. It is being held on Tuesday 20th March, 4:30pm – 5:45pm, and will be hosted by my colleague, Paddy Lavery. There are presentations from Nonlinear’s founder and CEO, Will Dracup, Julian Whitelegge Ph.D from UCLA and the session closes with a presentation by Juan Chavez, from the Bruce Lab, University of Washington.
The workshop aims to highlight the challenges of experiment design and the statistical analysis of ‘omics data. We hope that the people who attend the workshop will learn more about how to do reliable and reproducible proteomics experiments.
Please let us know if you would like more information about this, or any of the other conferences we are attending in early 2012.
