WELCOME TO THE SWEDISH PROTEOMICS SOCIETY

Please join our yearly meeting in Stockholm, November 7-8, 2022

The SWEDISH PROTEMICS SOCIETY (SPS) was founded in December 2001; a remarkable year that marked a historical turning point in genomic research.

The approximate 20,000 genes from a given mammalian cell forms the basis of the corresponding proteome. A single gene can produce several functional proteins that are the result of a number of differential mRNA splicing events and post-translational modifications. Such biological diversity ensures that proteomics is centrally positioned in research and general public interest, and will continue to be so in the future.


The exact number of proteins in the human proteome has been estimated at 300,000 to a few million. Undoubtedly, our scientific efforts within the proteomic research society will continue to provide additional information and contribute to answering this fundamental question.

The birth of the Swedish Proteomics Society is a natural consequence of the strong interest in protein expression profiling linked to outstanding research in the areas of biomedicine, biotechnology, and biology. Here, genomics, protein chemistry and molecular biology have been successfully combined to further proteomic and medical research within the country.

The aims of the society are to endorse activities within the proteomic field in Sweden, to interface with international proteomic programs and to develop and further promote state-of-the-art proteomic technology.

EVENTS

2021

The last seminar in our bi-weekly proteomics seminar series this fall will be on the 16th of December presented by Mohammad Roghanian from Umeå University (current Rigshospitalet Copenhagen) on "(p)ppGpp controls stringent factors by exploiting antagonistic allosteric coupling between catalytic domains".  

Wishing you all happy holiday season!

On behalf of SPS, BioMS and the SciLifeLab ISB platform,

Lotta Happonen

The 9th YPIC webinar "OCTOPUS: The new primary research record!" will
take place on the 17th September at 10 AM CEST. Join us for this
interesting introduction!

Dr Alexandra Freeman spent 17 years making science and natural history
documentaries at the BBC before taking on a role as Executive Director
of the Winton Centre for Risk & Evidence Communication at the University
of Cambridge. After seeing the scientific publishing system ‘from the
inside’ she came up with the idea for Octopus, a system designed to
change the incentive structure for the dissemination of research.

Octopus received funding and support from the UK’s governmental
science funder earlier this year and is being built in partnership with
the educational digital infrastructure provider Jisc for launch in
spring 2022. Join us if you want to know how Octopus can revolutionize
the scientific world!

We will launch a new national seminar series during this autumn in a joint effort between SPS, BioMS and the SciLifeLab Integrative Structural Biology (ISB) platform to promote Swedish mass spectrometry-based proteomics research. The overall goal is to provide a platform for sharing knowledge and methods as well as to increase new collaborations between different researchers. The main target audience are Ph.D. students and postdocs, as well as more established researchers interested in proteomics. Keep an eye on the SPS homepage for more information!

European Proteomics Association European Proteomics Association



 

EuPA is the federation that encompasses the European national proteomic societies. It was established to coordinate and integrate national initiatives within the field of proteomics. Through education and training, the main objective is to strengthen and promote fundamental proteomic research and applications in Europe.
Human Proteome Organization Human Proteome Organization



 

The Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) is an international scientific consortium comprised of proteomic research organizations, academic institutions and industrial partners. HUPO's mission is to define  and promote proteomics through international cooperation and collaborations to better understand human disease. This is achieved by fostering the development of new technologies, techniques and training.
