BASICS IN INTERPRETATION OF MASS SPECTRA

Hotel Kiljavanranta, Nurmijärvi, 24.-26.8.2011

Finnish Mass Spectrometry Society arranges a course "Basics in Interpretation of Mass Spectra" at Hotel Kiljavanranta, Nurmijärvi. The hotel is located by clear Lake Sääksjärvi approximately 46 kilometers from the Helsinki city centre. It is easily reached by a direct bus connection from the Kamppi bus terminal to Kiljava.

The course provides a basic theoretical background on mass spectrometry-based identification and structural characterisation of different types of molecules also behind of modern mass spectra interpretation software.

This knowledge can be applied, for example, in metabolomics, proteomics, lipidomics, glycomics, environmental and pharmaceutical sciences, structural biology, toxicology and synthetic chemistry.

Interpretation of mass spectra is learned with low-resolution electron ionisation mass spectra and high-resolution electrospray ionisation tandem mass spectra of low-molecular weight compounds. Interpretation is also performed by using modern interpretation software.

Teaching language is English and the teachers are

Prof. Janne Jänis, University of Eastern Finland
Doc. Raimo Ketola, University of Helsinki
Doc. Ari Tolonen, Admescope Oy

The course is supported by following graduate schools and doctoral programs and accepted in their training program (3 ECTS).

Biocenter Oulu Doctoral Programme
Finnish Graduate School in Toxicology
Glycoscience Graduate School
Graduate School in Pharmaceutical Research
National Doctoral Programme in Informational and Structural Biology
National Graduate School of Organic Chemistry and Chemical Biology
