Building a genetic atlas of the human plasma proteome | WEBINAR

Protein-genotype associations (pQTLs) are an important tool for identifying proteins that link genetic variants with disease states. In this webinar, Dr. Benjamin Sun will discuss a recent Nature paper in which he and his colleagues at the University of Cambridge used the SomaScan® Assay to develop a pQTL atlas for the human plasma proteome.

WHAT CAN PROTEOMICS TEACH US ABOUT INFECTIOUS DISEASE? | WEBINAR

Dr. Kevin Coombs has authored six different publications (2 pending) describing the use of the SomaScan Assay to investigate human cellular protein alterations in tissue culture in response to infection by Zika virus and various strains of influenza. In this webinar, Dr. Coombs will summarize the major findings produced from these studies and comment on how the SomaScan Assay could be used to further study infectious disease, including the current COVID-19 pandemic, in the immediate future.
