We are happy to announce the new Transmitting Science course: Palaeoproteomics and Zooarchaeology by Mass Spectrometry (ZooMS).
Instructor: Dr. Michael Buckley (University of Manchester, UK).
Schedule: Online live sessions on 2nd, 3rd, 6th, 8th, and 9th of November; from 13:00 to 17:00 (Madrid time zone), plus 4 hours of participants working on their own.
Places are limited to 12 participants and will be occupied by strict registration order.
AABA MEMBERS HAVE A 20 % DISCOUNT ON THE FEE.
Course overview In this course, participants will be introduced to paleoproteomic methods that will include various R packages including MALDIquant, for ZooMS MALDI peptide mass fingerprint-based species identification, MSFragger for sequencing and an introduction to incorporating proteomic sequence data into molecular phylogeny reconstruction using MEGA. During the course, participants will first be introduced to some theory with illustrative examples (both from simulated data as well as my groups own datasets) and will then learn how to interpret the data as well as how to assess their reliability.
