Proteomics is the study of the proteome of a cell, a tissue or an organism. It characterizes the proteins and their modifications and requires constant evolution and investments (in time, task forces and instruments) which are not easily affordable for a laboratory not specialized in biochemistry and mass spectrometry.

The GIGA Proteomic Facility is hosted by Mass Spectrometry Laboratory and works in collaboration with the Center for Analytical Research and Technology under scientific supervision of Professor Edwin De Pauw.
