LMP1207H: Mass spectrometry, proteomics and their clinical applications
Who can attend
You must be registered in a graduate program to attend this course.
This course is open to all graduate students at the University of Toronto, provided you have pre-approval from your department and the course coordinators.
You will learn the fundamentals of mass spectrometry and its use with biochemical techniques to provide analyses of proteins and small molecules.
You will also study the interface with bioinformatics and other -omics technologies.
The second half of the course is designed to bridge the gap between basic and translational sciences and will examine the research and clinical applications of mass spectrometry.
