Spectral counting: why not?

One of the key considerations in bottom-up label-free proteomics analysis is the means of feature quantitation. Being peptide ions, measurements of these features are ‘rolled up’ into inferred proteins, but two main approaches can be taken to generating the data for this purpose. The first, and most commonly used, approach is MS1 (precursor-based) measurement such […]

Wall to wall proteomics in Berlin

A few weeks ago, I attended the Proteomic Forum in Berlin, which was held in The Technical University, from 22nd to 25th March. It was my first time in Berlin, a cosmopolitan city with a fascinating mix of people where, just as in London, anything can happen. 🙂 Since it was my first visit to […]

Big cities and big science in Asia

Hi, my name’s Paul Goulding and I’m Nonlinear’s Business Development Manager for Asia, Africa and Australasia. I’ve been involved with sales to Asia and the Asia-Pacific region for many years now and have travelled to countries such as Japan, China, India, South Korea and Australia many times. This has given me the privilege of visiting […]

Have you read these 21 must-read proteomics articles?

At Nonlinear we get a lot of questions on the whole analysis process for proteomics data, from experimental design through to statistical analysis, QC, and database searching for protein and compound identities. For our own software and approaches, you may well find the answers to questions you have in our FAQs, and we’re always happy […]

Helping us to help you

Some time ago, we posted about the Progenesis Improvement Program (PIP), specifically about the reason why you should opt in: “Because it’s in your interest; you’ll get better, faster software as a result.” That’s a pretty ambitious claim – one lots of software companies make when trying to persuade you to participate in their feedback […]

Structural biology with Progenesis: Hybrid Vigour

We recently published a blog in which Progenesis QI was being turned to new uses (in food standards); I’m happy to say that we can now say likewise for Progenesis QI for proteomics, this time in structural biology! A 2014 publication in Nature Methods (Argyris Politis and Florian Stengel et al., [1]) described the development […]

Progenesis goes nuts in Brazil

Last week, I, along with my colleague Mark Bennett, had the pleasure of attending the 2nd Brazilian Proteomics Society and Pan-American HUPO joint meeting which was hosted in Búzios, Rio de Janiero. Falling coconuts at the opening function did little to dispel the Brazilian enthusiasm for celebrating proteomic research in their beautiful country. We were […]

QC Metrics: Helping you make the most of your time

Proteomics as a field is rapidly maturing; there is a real sense that established techniques are being improved, and excitement at emerging techniques for quantitation. Central to this revolution is the application of effective quality control (QC) – understanding what adversely affects proteomics data, monitoring for problems, and being able to pin down and address […]

Nonlinear in the Netherlands

Last Friday, I visited a team of proteomics users who adopted Progenesis as early as 2009.  I feel connected with this group because I made the first phone call to Prof Theo Luider, Head of Laboratory, Neuro-Oncology, Erasmus Medical Centre in the Netherlands back in 2008.  I remember it vividly, as I was calling to […]

Progenesis QI draws the crowds at HUPO 2014

This year, the 13th session of HUPO was held in the beautiful city of Madrid. We had such lovely warm weather compared to Paris or Newcastle Upon Tyne, with temperatures 10°C higher in Madrid. Sadly, with all the activity going on at the conference, there wasn’t much time to enjoy the sun. I could however […]
