Proteomics: Principles and Techniques

A Closer Look at Proteomics: Investigating Proteins at Larger Scale


IIT Bombay and NPTEL

About the Course

Proteomics is the study of proteins at larger scales. Proteins are present as the basic building blocks in all organisms and the field of proteomics explores the basics of protein in terms of its structure, function, systems, nature and coherence. Qualitative and quantitative modes of proteomics are used in modern science to explore the unseen nature of proteins, their micro constituents; amino acids and cellular functions, their emergence, and the applicable approach in the future.

1.What You Will Learn?
2.Who Should Go For It?
3.Points to Note

The students opting for this course will learn about proteins at the macro level and their properties and constituents at the micro level. The course will give in-depth knowledge about how proteins function, the structures and different levels of organisations and how different samples are prepared to explore the nature of proteins across different biological systems. Here are the few concepts that a student will get familiarised with through this course:

Evolution from protein chemistry to proteomics
Sample preparation and prefractionation steps
Gel-based proteomics
Mass Spectrometry
Quantitative proteomics
Techniques to study protein-protein interactions

Anyone interested in studying proteins and their complex nature can go for discourse. However, the prerequisite for the course is that a person should be familiar with basic biochemistry so that he/she can understand the concepts with more clarity. Professionals of the same field who wish to learn about new techniques or expand their existing knowledge base can also go for this free certification course.

Candidates interested in studying proteins
The syllabus has been divided into eight modules with 17 main concepts that have been further divided into mini-concepts covering proteomics.
The course is free of cost, but the final certification will depend upon the final score of the student, which will determine if he/she is getting a gold/silver/elite or a completed certificate.
The prerequisite to pursue the course has been mentioned as a student/learner having familiarity with biochemistry.
