Course Description The course is focused on identification and characterization of proteins present in complex extracts, like biological fluids and cellular extracts. In particular, the following topics will be treated: a) experimental protocols for protein extraction from complex samples, like cells and tissues b) description of different chromatographic techniques and their application c) overview of different electrophoretic techniques for protein purification d) mass spectrometry analysis (MS) for protein identification e) elaboration of MS data to obtain biological functional information f) importance of quantitative proteomics. The aims of the course are: 1) To give basic concept about the application of proteomic technologies and the use of experimental protocols based on equipment present in a Proteomics Laboratory for the extraction, purification and identification of proteins; 2) To understand the importance of proteomic analysis in the diagnosis, the monitoring, the comprehension and the treatment of pathologies. The course is organized with lessons and with practical sessions in the laboratory where the students learn the application of proteomic techniques, the use of the equipment as well as dedicated software for data analysis. To complement the practical lab activities and to stimulate active learning, the structuring skills of thinking and knowledge and the assessment among colleagues, the students, organized in groups, will be responsible for examining specific topics that will be presented and discussed with other students in flipped/blended classroom modality. The final exam is written test. The students evaluation will considered the final exam, the performance during the experimental training in laboratory and the presentation of specific chosen topic, focused on capacity to develop and to discuss a topic. It should be noted that this is a limited number access course. The mandatory procedure for access request is here http://www.ccsbio.polimi.it/?page_id=27 )".
