  • Basis of Mass Spectrometers
  • Data Acquisition; LC/MS
  • Protein Identification and Quantitation
  • Characterizing Post-translational Modifications
  • Analysis of Complex Mixtures
  • Targeted Proteomics
  • Basis for Database Search Algorithms
  • Rudimentary Analysis of Proteomics Data
  • Preparing Samples for Mass Spectrometry
