Center for MS Analytics
The Center for MS Analytics is organized by the departments of Molecular Genetics and Molecular Biotechnology and Systems Biology at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. It develops and applies state-of-the-art proteomics technologies to interrogate protein expression, modification and function in response to biological perturbation. The available technology includes advanced protein and ultra-high-pressure peptide separation, chemical and affinity-based enrichment techniques along with multiple mass spectrometry platforms, including Orbitrap and Tripple-TOF instruments. In collaboration with the department of Computational Systems Biology the center provides customized desktop and web-based software tools for the analysis of proteomics data.
