ProtIG is an NIH Special Interest Group (SIG) that organizes seminars and workshops in relevant areas of proteomics, including talks on separation and protein identification methods, determination of post-translational modifications, protein-protein interactions, and bioinformatics and data management. A monthly seminar series is held at 10am usually on the first Thursday of each month (always check the Mtgs/Seminars button on this page for these and other PROTIG announced meetings). To receive email announcements of ProtIG events, join the listserv (Join the SIG button on this page)

November ProtIG Seminar
November 3rd, 2016

Building 50, NIH Campus
Room 1328/1334
Jesse Rinehart, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Cellular and Molecular Physiology

"A general synthetic gateway to study the function of protein phosphorylation"

We have recently created a technology that enables site-specific incorporation of phosphoserine into proteins by expanding the genetic code of Escherichia coli. This technology was born from a multi-year, collaborative process that required a unique interface of Synthetic Biology, Systems Biology, and Proteomics. The result of this effort is a transformative approach to understand the function of over two hundred thousand phosphoproteins that define human biology. I will discuss the exciting origins of this work as well as recent advances in the application of recombinant phosphoproteins to understand protein function.

Seminars will be webcast online at and available on the
Proteomics Interest Group website as an archived presentation unless otherwise noted.

Please remember everyone is welcome to join us for the Informal Brown Bag/Fellows Forum Seminars. Our next meeting is September 29th at noon with Casey M Daniels of the Cellular Networks and Proteomics Unit, Laboratory of Systems Biology, NIAID, NIH
