The American Society for Mass Spectrometry (http://www.asms.org) will celebrate its 63rd National Meeting in St. Louis, Missouri May 31 - June 4, 2015.
Sites for Data Analysis
There are several sites on the Internet to get useful programs and information for those doing protein mass spectrometry.
- Protein identification from tryptic peptide fingerprint data from a MALDI-TOF
analysis, or peptide mass and fragmentation data from a triple quadrupole
instrument, a Q-tof or an Orbitrap, the best sites are:
http://www.matrixscience.com (the MASCOT program)
- A procedure for the in-gel digestion of proteins separated by 1D SDS-PAGE
analysis or 2D-IEF/SDS-PAGE is well described at http://donatello.ucsf.edu/ingel.html
- For those who use this procedure or have carried out digestion with proteolytic
enzymes in solution, the resulting peptides can be identified using UCSF MS
- Once a potential match has been made, MS Digest can be used to predict
all potential peptides including user-specified posttranslational modifications. UCSF MS Digest
- 2D-proteomics databases are available for many cell types and organs/tissues from several species as well as subcellular fractions. These are frequently annotated with regard to spot identification. The EXPASY site contains links to these databases as well as other useful programs and software for mass spectrometry http://www.expasy.org/ch2d/

Other useful sites
This site provides information about NIH-sponsored seminars in proteomics and is an excellent resource for links to other sites in proteomics and mass spectrometry.
This NIH site contains over 2000 seminars that have been archived and can be viewed at any time. There are three sections of interest to UAB investigators:
- Mass Spectrometry
Interest Group of the NCI at Frederick
- Mass spectrometry at NIST
