This webinar outlines a project led by the Association for Biomolecular Resource Facilities to help academic and core facilities who are using Data-Independent Acquisition (DIA) technology for protein quantification.
Proteomics researchers are realizing the promise of DIA, but due to the variety of acquisition methods, there is a need to develop best practices and offer opportunity for adoption. The ABRF Proteomics Research Group (PRG) realized that there was a need for a go-to resource for new users interested in DIA studies. Such a resource would provide information about sample processing, data acquisition, and data analysis.
As part of this study, a prototype sample set was used that was comprised of a HeLa digest spiked with four non-human proteins at different concentrations. Upon request, this sample was provided to 64 participants from labs all across the world, along with recommended data-acquisition methods. Raw data was requested from participants for the PRG to analyze. The user profile of the 45 laboratories who submitted the data had a good representation of users who were new to DIA; as well as those who had prior DIA experience.
Results from this study and future plans will be presented in the webinar.
