Introduction to Proteogenomics

  • 29 Jul 2019

Cancer research has been significantly aided by advancements in proteogenomics technologies, where proteomics information derived from mass spectrometry is used to complement genomics using next generation sequencing. With the recent advent of Cancer Moonshot Project, the critical role that proteogenomics can play in improving cancer patient treatment is increasingly being recognized. This course will utilize advanced genomic and proteomic technologies and their data from high-quality human biospecimens to identify potentially actionable therapeutic molecular targets. This course is a part of a workshop by experts in the fields of proteomics and proteogenomics in cancer research from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. The course will comprise interactive lectures with case studies, hands-on sessions and demonstrations on proteogenomics aimed at accelerated understanding of cancer and will cover the principles of proteogenomics followed by experimental sessions, where proteomics data using LC-MS/MS will be processed and analyzed. The next step will be to integrate the proteomics data with genomics data, from The Cancer Genome Atlas for the proteogenomics analysis. Lectures and demonstrations on different computational methods will be performed for statistical data analysis of proteogenomics data.

Part II

This course introduces to the basic biology of proteins and the new advanced science called as proteomics which aims to look into the protein properties from a global perspective, i.e., not undertaking one protein at a time, but an entire set of proteins in the milieu. The course will cover in detail the two major aspects of proteomics i.e., Gel-based proteomics and Mass spectrometry-based proteomics. The gel-based module will cover different techniques like SDS-PAGE, 2-DE, 2D-DIGE etc. These techniques had a major contribution in transition from protein chemistry to proteomics. Mass spectrometry, on the other hand, is an advanced analytical technique for accurate mass measurement. In this module, we will discuss the basics of mass spectrometry, sample preparations, liquid chromatography, hybrid mass spectrometers and quantitative proteomics techniques such as iTRAQ, SILAC and TMT using mass spectrometry. The course will also provide the basic knowledge about sample preparation, mass spectrometry workflow, different chromatography technologies and quantitative proteomics.
