Proteomics and other -omics
Scientists from the EU’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) have carried out a multi-year study based on comparative metabolomics combined with chemometrics on carrots coming from different agronomic environments. The results highlight the potential of metabolomics fingerprinting for organic food authentication purposes.
Mass spectrometry-based proteomic analysis matches bullets to wounds using organ-specific protein signatures found on projectiles.
Searching for the precise, complexly folded three-dimensional structure of a protein can be a long, intensive process with uncertain direction. A technique based on nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy offers a solution.
Agilent Technologies has announced the opening of a new centre for life science research in partnership with Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. The Carleton Mass Spectrometry Center, located in the university’s department of chemistry, is equipped with state-of-the-art mass spectrometers, gas and liquid chromatography systems, and bioinformatics tools from Agilent. It will be an analytical...
Collaboration to produce commercially available assays that quantitatively measure phosphorylated and unmodified proteins known to be involved in cancer signalling pathways.
