Course description 

The Proteomics course is designed for the IInd year students of the following Master Programmes: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (in Romanian), Applied Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (in English) and Applied Genetics and Biotechnologies (in Romanian), Faculty of Biology, University of Bucharest.

The course addresses the following topics:

(i) Introduction in Proteomics (amino acids, peptides, proteins, proteome, protein extraction);

(ii) Separation of proteins (ultracentrifugation, precipitation, dialysis, chromatography, electrophoresis);

(iii) Quantification of proteins;

(iv) Identification of proteins (complete hydrolysis, Edman degradation, mass spectrometry, protein sequence analysis, immunological techniques);

(v) Interaction Proteomics (biochemical, genetic, bioinformatic, optical methods);

(vi) Structural Proteomics (X-Ray Crystallography, NMR, 3D Cryo EM, molecular modeling);

(vii) Modifications of proteins (phosphorylation, glycosylation, etc.);

(viii) Applications of Proteomics (disease diagnosis, drug design, plant biotechnologies).
