An Introduction to Mass Spectrometry Including Biomolecule Applications
Presented by Dr. Bryan M. Ham, Homeland Security at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection New York Laboratory
Tuesday, July 6, 2021 ◉ 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm EST
TARGET AUDIENCE: Chemists, lab technicians, analysts and undergraduate and graduate students studying the sciences. The course will appeal to anyone who is interested in having a survey of an introduction to mass spectrometry all the way through to the application to biomolecules.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: The objective of the course is to introduce the fundamentals of mass spectrometry including ionization sources, mass analyzers, reaction rate theory, and spectral interpretation. The course also includes examples of the application of mass spectrometry to biomolecule analysis including lipids, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, and proteomics. The aim of the course is to provide a basic understanding of the fundamentals of mass spectrometry and its application to biomolecule analysis. The course will draw from the author’s book “Even Electron Mass Spectrometry with Biomolecule Applications.”
