31.10.2011 - Due to the termination of services of WITA GmbH proteomics training courses and high-throughput MALDI protein identification will be discontinued. Proteome Consult currently searches for new partners for these services. All other laboratory services as well as bioinformatic services remain unaffected.
5.7.2011 - Proteome Consult concludes 2D-NEPGHE-gel data evaluation of a kidney cancer study. 32 potential cancer markers were suggested for protein identifiation.
13.1.2011 - Proteome Consult finalizes scripts for extracting taxa-sorted databases in FASTA-format from NCBInr protein sequence database. The extracted databases are useful for speeding up Mascot searching. Increases in search speed of more than 10-fold are observed for small databases on older hardware. Speed gains of approx. three-fold - for an average-sized database, can be expected on the latest hardware. Extracted databases for human, mouse and rat are available for testing. Please inquire.

Dr. Wacker comments:
High resolution 2D-gel technique and Ludesi 2D-gel data analysis services will be the cutting edge in upcoming state of the art proteomics projects. This approach has the potential to resolve and quantify each of the >10000 protein spots which can be visualized by high-resolution 2D-gel technique.
Ludesi software hereby contributes by state of the art spot quantification and matching combined with high throughput for large proteomics match sets.
