The Finnish Proteomic Society (FinnProt) and the Finnish Mass Spectrometry Society (FMSS) are arranging the
2nd Finnish Symposium on
Biological Mass Spectrometry
30 October – 1 November 2017
Monday 30 October is reserved for course program. Tuesday and Wednesday are reserved for scientific presentations.
Organisers will reserve accomodation for the participants at Vanajanlinna.
More details on the program, arrangments and symposium fees will be posted later together with the symposium website.
A new Board was elected at the general FinnProt assembly, March 16, 2017 in Helsinki.
Anne Rokka was elected as the new vice-President.
Santosh Bhosale was elected as a member of the board.
The board wishes to warmly thank Petri Kouvonen for all his contribution to the society’s growth and activities.
Here attached the final program for the FinnProt Bioinformatics Course . Registrations are now closed.
The Finnish Proteomics society, FinnProt, arranges a two-day Bioinformatics course in Biomedicum 1, Helsinki. The course will provide both theoretical and practical training in the use of bioinformatics and statistics tools for mass spectrometric data analysis, with a special focus on proteomics. Participants will get familiarized with the data analysis workflow, starting from the experimental design to functional data analysis. The course comprises both theoretical lectures and hands-on training in computer lab, where participants will be trained in the use of bioinformatics tools.
This course is aimed at MSc and PhD level students, as well as researchers who want to get a better understanding of bioinformatics and statistical methods, and gain experience in functional bioinformatics data interpretation. To enter the course a basic understanding of mass spectrometry-based proteomics is beneficial.

Registration and participation
The course is open to all academic researches and students. Number of participants is limited to 60.
Please register at: https://goo.gl/forms/bnS900s4Qr6f2B203 until March 12th, 2017.
The Oodi code for the course is 921257. Participants will obtain 0.5 ECTS (lectures) + 1 ECTS (practical session)
Course will cover:
- The basics of experimental design,
- Mass-spectrometry normalization strategies,
- Principles of statistical tools for MS data analysis,
- Available tools for MS data interpretation,
- Tools for functional analysis and data visualization.
After this course you will be able to:
- Design your proteomic study,
- Evaluate the quality of proteomic data sets,
- Select the appropriate workflow and software tools for MS data analysis,
- Easier publish your proteomics data,
- Get the most out of your proteomic data.
This course is supported by the Doctoral Programme in Biomedicine (DPBM)
