May Institute on Computation and Statistics for Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics

The May Institute on Computation and Statistics for Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics will take place on April 29 – May 10, 2019 at Northeastern University, Boston MA. This educational program combines keynote presentations, introductory lectures, practical training, and informal personal discussions.

Instructors in the program are leading experts, who contributed numerous experimental and computational methods and software. The target audience are both beginners and experienced scientists, who would like to strengthen their computational and statistical expertise. We also welcome computer scientists, bioinformaticians, data scientists, statisticians and engineers interested in learning about working with data from modern biotechnologies. The participants will have many opportunities to ask questions, and will be able to present their research.

Participants can select a subset of the following programs:
- Targeted proteomics with Skyline
- Proteomics and metabolomics with OpenMS
- Imaging mass spectrometry with Cardinal
- Beginner's statistics in R
- Advanced R
- Statistics for quantitative mass spectrometry
- Visualization of biomolecular data
- Scientific writing
- Capstone – case studies in data-independent acquisition (DIA)

Tuition fee wavers and travel fellowships will be available for students and postdocs affiliated with academic institutions in the US. The application deadline is January 31, 2019
