The IGBMC Proteomics Platform specializes in the identification and quantification of proteins and proteomes. It relies on a team expert in mass spectrometry, peptide synthesis and bioinformatics to meet the analytical needs of academic or private partners.


  • Peptide synthesis
  • Protein / proteome analysis in solution or in gel
  • Characterization of post-translational modifications (phospho-STY, acetyl-K, ubi-K, Glyco-N)
  • Protein quantification (label free, SILAC, TMT, iTRAQ)
  • Molecular mass verification of purified proteins
  • Structural study (SS bridges, XL-MS)
  • Bioinformatics and statistical analysis (Perseus, R, python)
  • Carrying out studies and R&D developments, collaboration
