Post-translational protein modifications add a tremendous amount of
complexity to cellular proteomes. The large variety of
post-translational modifications (PTMs) and their concurrent appearance
in proteins dramatically increase the proteome size from mere thousands
to the order of millions of possible protein forms. Emerging evidence
indicates that in plants crucial regulatory PTMs that control protein
function and activity include, amongst others, phosphorylation,
ubiquitination, sumoylation, various redox-based modifications,
palmitoylation, methylation, riboylation and acetylation. PTMs
intimately regulate a large variety of plant developmental programmes
and responses to their environment.
This symposium will bring together a growing global community of plant
scientists to recognise the importance of signalling by PTMs and provide
an enhanced understanding and appreciation for the role
post-translational protein (PTMs) modifications play in shaping plant
The symposium will be suitable for researchers at any stage in their
careers and we encourage early-career PhD students and postdocs to
attend as they will benefit from exposure to the current changing
perspective on which factors determine phenotypic traits.
GARNET WORKSHOP ON PLANT PROTEOMICS
13 DECEMBER 2017, UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH
GARNet is pleased to sponsor a Proteomics workshop for researchers who
wish to learn about new technologies and available software for the
analysis of their samples. This full day workshop will be led by Dr Alex
Jones (University of Warwick) and more detail regarding the topics
covered in the workshop will be available soon.
The workshop will take place at the University of Edinburgh and is
limited to 30 delegates. It is FREE to attend so please indicate you
wish to attend the workshop when booking your place at the symposium.
Further information on the symposium is available on
