The Human Proteome
April 24—29, 2015 Stockholm, Sweden
The 2015 Symposium on The Human Proteome follows the very successful 2012 Keystone meeting in the same location in Sweden. As before, we have made every effort to present proteomics research of outstanding excellence and current scientific interest. Unlike the previous meeting, this one has a defining and topical theme: The completion of the human proteome. In fact, the date and venue are chosen, in part, because they coincides with the completion of the Human Protein Atlas, a very large undertaking to generate antibodies and localization information for all human protein coding regions. This event also coincides with the expected completion of complete proteome measurements of mammalian cells by mass spectrometry-based proteomics, which will be a major highlight of the conference and attract not only scientific but also media interest. Two sessions will be dedicated to covering the completion of human proteome, encompassing the leading researchers engaged with this important topic. Further sessions are dedicated to the rapid advances in mass spectrometric technology in proteomics. Complementing these advances, one session will deal with the analysis of intact proteins. Further topics represented are interaction proteomics and post-translational modifications. Related topics such as network analysis, crosslinking and of course conceptually novel applications of proteomics in cell biology and biomedicine will round off the program. Given the quality of the invited speakers and the breakthrough presentations, we expect the 2015 Keystone Symposium on The Human Proteome to be the scientifically most exciting event in this field.
