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
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).
