Guidelines for single-cell proteomic experiments

Henry Ford remarked that coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success. Working together is also more fun. Thus, from the very beginning, we sought to help colleagues adopt and use single-cell proteomic methodologies that our laboratory developed, and to do so following best practices To develop and disseminate … Continue reading Guidelines for single-cell proteomic experiments

Adsorption losses during single-cell proteomics

Proteins are wonderfully diverse! Their physicochemical diversity is essential to animating life, to performing the myriad functions necessary to process energy, nutrients and information in living systems. The physicochemical diversity of proteins also poses challenges to proteomic analysis. Different amino acid sequences can adsorb to various surfaces, thus resulting in losses, reduced sensitivity and even … Continue reading Adsorption losses during single-cell proteomics

Framework for increasing proteomics throughput

Simultaneously achieving achieving deep proteome coverage, high data completeness, high throughput, and high sensitivity has been a long standing challenge in the field of proteomics. This challenge is particularly evident and relevant to single-cell proteomics, which has the potential to enable mechanistic investigations of key biological questions, such as signaling mechanisms based on protein binding, modifications, and … Continue reading Framework for increasing proteomics throughput

Research fest

Let's promote good research: Share it in accessible and engaging ways. Put it in context and help your colleagues appreciate it. The more we can put substance ahead of hype, the more science and our colleagues benefit from our highlights.

Label-free single-cell proteomics

Recently, Matthias Mann and colleagues published a preprint (doi: 10.1101/2020.12.22.423933v1) reporting a label-free mass-spectrometry method for single-cell proteomics. Many colleagues asked me what I think about the preprint, and I summarized a few comments in the peer review below. I did not examine all aspects of the work, but I hope my comments are useful: … Continue reading Label-free single-cell proteomics
