The OncoProteomics Laboratory, VUmc, hosts a meeting on colims on May 8th

Please join us on Thursday May 8th from 13:00 until 17:00 for a proteomics (bioinformatics) meeting in Amsterdam.

The main topic of this fourth DTL Focus meeting will be colims, a new system for storing mass spectrometry based proteomics data. The system is being developed by the group of Lennart Martens (at Ghent University) and several members of his team will join the meeting.The most important goal of colims is to enable more research queries on your proteomics data. In addition to that, uploading data to the PRIDE proteomics repository from EBI (which is often required for publications) is much easier after putting the metadata in colims.


13:00-13:15 - introduction by Connie Jimenez (NPP steering committee, VUmc)

13:15-13:45 - experience with automatically generated QC graphs and metrics by Thang Pham (VUmc)

13:45-14:15 - TBA

14:15-14:30 - break

14:30-17:00 - presentation of the latest version of colims by Lennart Martens and/or members of his team

Suggestions for the agenda (or anything else) are of course welcome!
