Proteomics & Metabolomics
In addition to doing work on existing IGBB projects, the IGBB proteomics staff can
perform a variety of mass spectrometry and other proteomics services for MS State principal investigators and
IGBB collaborators. Such research can be performed through a Proposal Partnership,
a Research Agreement, or the Service Center.
IGBB's proteomics staff has considerable expertise in...
- Protein isolation/purification from all types of organisms/tissues
- 1D & 2D gel electrophoresis
- Gel- and non-gel-based mass spectrometry
- Protein identification
- Discovery and characterization of post-translational modifications;
- Quantitative proteomics
- Comparative proteomics & metabolomics
- Western blotting & protein visualization
- Integration of proteomic and nucleic acids data (e.g., proteogenomic
- Functional annotation of proteins using Gene Ontology (GO)
standards and procedures
With regard to mass spectrometers, the IGBB's proteomics staff utilizes a ThermoFisher LTQ Orbitrap Velos, a Waters Nano ESI Q-TOF (model Xevo G2-S), and an Applied Biosystems (now ThermoFisher) MALDI TOF TOF. The LTQ Orbitrap Velos and the Nano ESI Q-TOF are fitted with upstream HPLC sample
To discuss the possibility of having the IGBB conduct
proteomics research in collaboration with you, please submit a ticket through the MyIGBB HelpDesk.
An IGBB proteomics consultant will respond to your query as quickly as possible
(usually within 24 hours).
A listing of IGBB Standard Services and their prices -- including information and prices for Training and Self-Service Equipment Usage -- is available in the Standard Services Catalog in MyIGBB and in PDF form via the link below.

PIs are asked to consider whether the participation of an IGBB employee in a project merits that employee's inclusion as a co-author on a resulting manuscript(s). The decision ultimately lies with the PI. However, the IGBB encourages IGBB staff and faculty involved in Proposal Partnerships
and Research Agreements
to discuss/negotiate co-authorship with PIs before starting work on a project.
