Mass Spectrometry is a powerful tool in protein research. The combination of Liquid Chromatography (LC) with a tandem mass spectrometrer (MS/MS) can be used for:
- Protein identification by database search or De Novo sequencing
- Quantification of proteins in biological samples (expression levels)
- Identification of biologically relevant posttranslational modifications (PTM)
The Laboratory of Mass Spectrometry is a service facility of the Department of Molecular Biology.
