The 4th Swedish Proteomics Society Symposium

Fourth Swedish Proteomics Society Symposium was held 9-10 October, 2005 in Stockholm

4th Swedish Proteomics Society Symposium
October 9-10, 2005
AlbaNova, Stockholm

The 4th Swedish Proteomics Society (SPS) meeting in Stockholm will include reviews of the current research areas as well as presentations of new emerging technologies. Proteins play crucial roles in all biological pathways and functions. Therefore, the characterization of protein functions, networks of interaction and also protein abundance within an organism contribute considerably to the understanding of life. An important challenge is to utilize the novel genetic information for better understanding of protein distribution and function in normal as well as in pathological biological processes.

Moreover, the recent progress in classical proteomics has been aggressive. Traditional techniques, which often involve 2-D gel electrophoresis or multidimensional liquid chromatography followed by protein or peptide identification using mass spectrometry, have been complemented with elegant approaches in which the biosamples are differentially labeled, mixed, processed, and analyzed. All these technology improvements will lead to better understanding of different diseases, discovery of new biomarkers and hopefully be important in the development of new, more efficient, drugs.
