Practical Palaeoproteomics Summer School 2020

The UCPH Practical Palaeoproteomics Summer School will provide intensive hands-on training on the most advanced methods so far developed to analyse ancient proteins from paleontological, palaeoanthropological and cultural heritage objects. In just one week, the programme will cover the entire palaeoproteomics experimental workflow: from sample preparation to result presentation.

Method variants to process bone, dental enamel, soft tissues and painted objects will be described by the very people who developed and pioneered their application. The analyses used for specific applications, such as protein damage assessment or phylogenetic inference will be presented and discussed as well. By the end of the course, the attendees will be able to autonomously use the methods we shared with them to process their own samples.
