Post-Translational Modifications


There are several levels at which we study protein modifications; the proteome level, the protein level and the modification level. We develop bioinformatics methods and analytical strategies for the identification of all detectable modifications. We also use enrichment techniques to target specific modifications, such as phosphorylation, for detailed analysis.
