Research Projects

Research in the Wysocki group is separated into three broad areas: (1) determination of peptide dissociation mechanisms as a means for improving programs used for automated sequencing of peptides and proteins, (2) biomarker discovery for foreign organism detection, and disease diagnosis using proteomics methods, and (3) implementation of surface-induced dissociation into commercial time-of-flight instruments.

Research projects in progress address various fundamental and application-driven questions at different levels of biomolecules from peptides to large intact protein complexes, using mass spectrometry as a tool. Please click on each category to see the list of related projects.
