November 2nd 2022
In India, genomics and proteomics research has grown remarkably over the last decade. It is being
extensively used in basic research including profiling, complexity analysis, protein trafficking, and
biochemical modelling as well as for translational research that encompasses infectious and immune
disorders, reproductive disorders, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, eye disorders, human cancers and
hematological disorders. Genomics and Proteomics studies are now being carried out in various
universities and research institutes spread across the country. It is a timely effort to add proteogenomics in
the academic curriculum. Trained and qualified human resources and transferring know-how in
proteomics and mass spectrometry are increasing rapidly.
PSI commits to its responsibility to inspire the future proteomers, promote proteo-genomic education to
the young students, researchers, and college & university teachers. Thus, "Education Day", a knowledge
initiative, is an integral part of the PSI Annual Meeting. It aims to comprehensively disseminate and teach
basic and advanced proteomics and allied research tools.
This year, we will celebrate Education Day on 2nd November 2022. Students, postdoctoral fellows,
researchers, college and university teachers and those seeking to incorporate proteomics into research or
academic programs are encouraged to join the platform.
