University of Dhaka at UB#21511
November 23rd, 2017 - 2:00pm

A seminar talk entitled “Application of mass-spectrometry techniques in human diseases” will be delivered by Dr. Sajib Chakraborty, Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Dhaka at UB#21511 (MNS Multi-Purpose Room) on Thursday, November 23, 2017 at 2:00pm.

You are cordially invited to attend the seminar.


Unlike the transcriptome, quantification of the proteome still requires the development of special strategies. Transcriptomics platforms such as microarray - and RNAseq-based approaches are designed to uncover the information at the transcriptome level that in turn shapes the proteome to carry out the functional cellular processes. Since most of the biological processes are controlled by proteins, it is important to quantitatively measure proteome alterations in varying conditions to mechanistically understand how cellular processes are carried out. Within the last decade mass spectrometry increasingly became the method of choice for proteome analyses and now also provides a solid platform for its accurate quantification. The aim of quantitative proteomics is to obtain reliable quantitative information about all the proteins that fall within the mass spectrometric dynamic range.

Short biography of the speaker:

Dr. Sajib Chakraborty did his PhD, from the German Cancer Research Center, University of Heidelberg, Germany in 2016 on the Quantitative analysis of cell fate decision of erythroid progenitor cells through SILAC based proteomics approach.

He did his Masters in 2008 from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (2008), University of Dhaka. He did his second master in Molecular Medicine (2010), University College London (UCL), UK. Dr. Sajib did work on the Quantitative proteomic analyses of the senescent fibroblast cell secretome by in vivo metabolic labeling during his Masters thesis. This study was designed to apply the quantitative proteomics approach to identify and quantify large set of proteins present in secretome network by comparing the abundance of secretome proteins between juvenile and senescent fibroblast cell populations

He did his B.Sc. from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (2007).
