Proteomics Unit

In 2011, Dr. Markku Varjosalo was selected as a new Systems Biology Research Group Leader as well as a Director of the Proteomics Unit.  The Proteomics Unit continues to offer standard protein purifications, identifications and characterizations, but will also heavily focus on developing state-of-the-art omics-scale proteomic analyses. During the fall 2011, the Proteomics unit underwent major upgrades to the instrumentation and analysis software. The purchase of an Orbitrap Elite Hybrid Mass Spectrometer and label-free mass spectrometry data analysis softwares (e.g Progenesis, Nonlinear Dynamics) increases the sensitivity and specificity of our analyses and enables us to offer a wide variety of completely new proteomics services.
