Plant Metabolomics and Proteomics Workshop 2011: Mass Spectrometry 
Informed by Stable Isotope Methods

Deadline to apply extended until July 22, 2011

A 'tuition and registration free' educational opportunity:

The other 'omics, metabolomics and proteomics, are powerful tools that
can advance research and offer insights not previously possible.
However, these methods require backgrounds that
are unique from the genomics science they inform.  With the ASPB2011
coming to the Twin Cities this summer, we have a unique opportunity to
share with our colleagues some of the foundations as well as advances
being made by the University of Minnesota group.  Please find the 
announcement through the link at our protein turnover website 
(http://www.proteinturnover.umn.edu/) or you can get it by
direct access at:
This workshop will be held on the University of Minnesota, Saint Paul 
campus just  prior to the ASPB meeting.  The workshop is free and we 
have a very limited number of scholarships also available.  We are 
limited in the number of participants we can handle, so please register 
your interests  early to ensure that we can accommodate your interest. 
Please feel free to circulate this announcement to other interested 
students and colleagues.


Plant Metabolomics and Proteomics Workshop 2011: Mass Spectrometry 
Informed by Stable Isotope Methods

Purpose: To provide
1.	A tutorial on the general workings and application of LC- and GC-mass 
spectrometry in the areas of plant metabolomics and proteomics.
2.	Provide resources (online tools, how to use the MS facility, etc.) to 
lower the barrier for participants to use metabolomics and proteomics 
3.	An overview of some specific areas of current metabolomics/proteomics 
research (by showing work being done in our labs).
4.	Hands-on demonstrations of typical metabolomic and proteomic 
workflows (sample collection, extraction, derivatization, isotope 
dilution, analysis)

1)	Introduction to Proteomics and Metabolomics: terminology, history and 
general methodology –Hegeman (40+5)

characteristics) and Interfacing with Separations, (ESI, MALDI, EI) 
introduce imaging -Hegeman/Cohen (50+10)
4)	Proteomics: Workflow, in-gel digests, top down vs. bottom up 
proteomics, Mudpit, Identifying proteins and their modifications, 
database searching and validation, quantification approaches

5)	Metabolomics: Workflow, sampling and variability, quenching 
metabolism, dealing with chemical diversity, using multiple platforms, 
LC-MS, GC-MS, derivatization, MS/MS, MSn database and computational 
resources – Hegeman/Cohen (40 +5)
6)	Stable isotope methods I. Isotope dilution, protein tagging (ICAT, 
iTRAC, TMT, 18O-water etc.) and tracer techniques –Cohen/Roe (50 +10)
7)	Stable isotope methods II: (Cohen introduce)
a.	Analysis of wine/deuteration of polyphenolics –Roe (25 +5)
b.	Plant hormone analysis by isotope dilution analysis –Xing Liu (25 +5)

loosestrife -Will Menzel (25+5)
b.	Identifying botanical resin sources used by honey bees in propolis 
production –Mike Wilson (25+5)
10)	Stable isotope methods III.  Metabolic labeling methods. Relative 
quantification, Identifying metabolites and using isotopes and MS, 
metabolic flux analysis, partial labeling approaches, labeling mammals – 
Hegeman/Cohen (50 +10)
11)	Protein turnover, discuss history, various labeling approaches for 
analysis of turnover, describe approach for proteome scale turnover 
measurement we have developed –Cohen (40 +5)
