Automation of Glycan and Peptide Mapping: Leveraging Software to Improve Efficiency and Quality

Webinar

Glycan and peptide mapping should be easy to accomplish as part of routine characterization. However, it is often a tedious interpretation process where results can be fraught with risk of errors in transcription and labeling, especially when including MS2 or UV data in addition to MS1.

PTM Analysis: How to Marry Speed and Confidence in R&D

Webinar

Even the most well-controlled LC-MS methodologies are subject to a wide array of variables such as LC conditions, type of mass spectrometer, data acquisition rates, etc. All of these variables can impact the raw data. Regardless, the investigator will ultimately end up with an uneditable raw mass spectrometry data file in a vendor-specific format.

Sex Affects Gene Expression in Mammals
News

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus, so the saying goes. The differences between the sexes have been explored across a variety of disciplines over many years: philosophy, literature and, of course, science. From a biological perspective, however, the effect that sex has on gene expression, particularly in autosomal (sex-linked) genes, has been a relatively unmapped area – until now.

Inside a “Fake” Conference: A Journey Into Predatory Science
Article

There is a growing underbelly of conferences that seem like the real thing but have none of the editorial standards expected by academics and have developed a reputation for advertising with fake agendas and high prices. These are "predatory conferences", named after the more well-known sister industry of "predatory publishing. A chance investigation took us inside a predatory conference and has uncovered how predatory science has ensnared scientists at every level.
