Next Generation Proteomics

This year's meeting is an acknowledgement of how far proteomics has travelled. We are now in the era where generating multiple comprehensive proteomes in a day is becoming routine. The field is now utilising the underlying technologies to go well beyond traditional proteome analyses. Proteomic experiments can now capture not only quantitative data or PTM data but also protein interaction, spacial, structural and temporal information. Not only are proteomes becoming more granular, their synergistic links with the other main cellular systems such the metabolome and transcriptome are also being unravelled. Proteomics technologies continue to develop leading to ever more rapid proteomic analyses from ever lower amounts of starting material. Such work has led to studies being performed on thousands of samples, enabling large scale cohort analyses for medical research, while advances in fragmentation technology have made crosslinking studies almost routine and rapidly expanded the number of post translational modifications and protein classes that can be characterised.

The 2020 meeting will celebrate these next generation technologies and how they are transforming applications from scientific research to commercial quality control and civil security.

Speakers And Workshops

BSPR Satellite Meeting: MS and proteomic analysis in animal sciences, food and agriculture

Sunday 5th July 2020, 10:30 – 17:30

Organised by Dr. Cristian Piras (c.piras@reading.ac.uk) and the Department of Chemistry at the University of Reading.

Booking for this event is perfomed separately via Eventbrite, please see details here.

EBI/PRIDE Training Course

with Juan Antonio Vizcaino and Sandra Orchard.

This workshop will start with an introduction to EBI resources and go on to cover advanced uses of our systems to annotate your protein data, including how best to exploit the comprehensive annotation and linked databases available via UniProt, and how to draw upon and re-analyse public data available in PRIDE and ProteomeXchange. [Timetable]

Skyline Training Course

with Brendan MacLean and Ben Collins.

This workshop will start with an introduction to processing proteomic Data Independent Acquisition (DIA) data, and the capabilities of Skyline. After lunch, there will be a tutorial on DIA data processing followed by a hands-on session. Later in the afternoon, some real-world example studies will be covered in depth, and the workshop will end with an exploration of advanced DIA topics including diaPASEF. [Timetable]

BSPR 2020 is set in the scenic St. Anne's College, close to the heart of Oxford. Founded in 1879 as part of the Association for the Education of Women, St. Anne's has been a full College of the University of Oxford since 1952. An extensive history of the college may be found on the college website.

Limited accommodation for participants is available in the Ruth Deech Building of St. Anne's. See the conference registration page for booking options.

The UniversityRooms website lists alternative University college accomodation options.

There is also a good range of hotels, with prices ranging from £60 to £285 per night, within walking distance of St Anne's and the city centre of Oxford, (although parking may be limited in some cases).

College Accommodation and Conference Dinner

St. Annes College offers some in-college conference accomodation, in the form of single en-suite rooms, which may be booked via the links below. This accomodation has very limited availability. Please note that accomodation options for the conference and the pre-conference workshops are separate - be sure to book both if you are attending a workshop!

  • College Accomodation for Pre-Conference Workshop, Sunday 5th July (£80) | book here
  • College Accomodation for BSPR2020 Conference, Monday 6th & Tuesday 7th July (£160) | book here

Abstract Submission

Abstract submissions are now open via EasyChair here.

The submission deadline has moved to Friday 1st May at 17.00.


All submitted abstracts will be considered for Oral presentation. Please indicate via the submission form if you do NOT want to be considered for a Poster presentation.

There will be poster presentation sessions on both days of the conference (Monday and Tuesday).

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel the BSPR2020 Conference.

We know there will be a lot of exciting proteomics research ongoing despite the working restrictions imposed by quarantine, and we look forward to hearing about it at conferences to come!

Any registration and accomodation bookings made will be refunded.

Please contact Shabaz Mohammed (shabaz.mohammed@chem.ox.ac.uk) with any further enquiries.

We hope you stay safe and well.
