Proteins are the workhorses in all living cells and, as such, form the basis of all living systems. In order to fully understand biological processes, it is critical to be able to identify and quantify the proteins in cells. This can be done by sequencing since each protein has a unique amino acid sequence. However, practical realisation of protein sequencing remains an enormous challenge.
Single-molecule techniques would revolutionize proteomics research, providing ultimate sensitivity for the detection of low abundance proteins, protein modifications and alternative splicing, paving a way to the realization of single-cell proteomics.
In this webcast, Dr. Chirlmin Joo of Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft will review recent novel approaches to single-molecule protein sequencing, together with the first experimental results from his group. He will discuss their advantages and drawbacks and share his perspective on the development of single-molecule protein sequencing techniques.
