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 2022 meeting will celebrate next generation technologies and how they are transforming applications from scientific research to commercial quality control and civil security.

Protein-Protein Interactions and Networks

Sunday 3rd July - 10am start

Led by a team of instructors from the European Bioinformatics Institute and Harvard Medical School.

Network analysis is a powerful tool for finding clusters of related molecules identified in a proteomics experiment, for example molecules which play a role in the same biological process or are co-components of a protein complex.

Computational tools, including protein interaction databases and network building tools, have therefore been developed to store, analyze, interpret, and learn from proteomics data.

In this one day workshop we will look at some of these resources, in particular the BioPlex human interactome, the IntAct molecular interaction database and the Complex Portal.

You will learn how to merge and integrate data using common data formats and how to access and visualise protein interaction networks using a Cytoscape App.


Sandra Orchard - EBI
Ed Huttlin - Harvard Medical School
Kalpana Panneerselvam - EBI

Workshop Topics

  • Experimental methods for studying PPI
  • Integration of PPI databases as in IMEx consortium and PSICQUIC
  • IntAct database for accessing IMEx data
  • Computational analysis of MS interaction data
  • The Complex Portal
  • BioPlex: Large-scale profiling of the human interactome
  • Visualisation of PPI using the IntAct Cytoscape app
  • A user's guide to the BioPlex networks

BSPR 2022 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 will be available in the Ruth Deech Building of St. Anne's. See the conference registration page below.

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).
