The Belgian Proteomics Association no longer is an organization solely for the experts in the field. Actually, we are now dedicating a lot of our activities to the users of proteomics, i.e. scientists that require some of the many different proteomics techniques to help them move on with their own research. This is why all our activities center around introducing peolple into the basics of proteomics.
As a BePA member, you can join all our workshops for free. They are organized all over Belgium and will help you to work out an experimental design, prepare yourself for the upcoming workflow, understand the basics in data analysis or simply get ready for your PhD defense, if your work involved proteomics.
Our main event is the BePA conference, BePAc for short. This year we will trial a new conference design, wherein we have a workshop day preceding the conference. During this workshop day (6th of December) you will get a detailed overview of a proteomics workflow, including experimental design, sample preparation, data acquisition and data analysis (identification and quantification). By the end of the day, everyone will have the opportunity to discuss their (research) questions personally with an expert. If you attend this workshop day, you will also be fully prepared to understand everything during our conference day, where we have international and national experts telling about what proteomics has done for them: microbiology, Plant interactomics, toward sigle-cell proteomics, proteomics in cancer,…
