Plant-based proteomics

Proteome analysis

Plants science is essential, and many industries depend on plant biology, technology, ecology, and evolution. As a vital source for nutrients in our diet, sustainable agriculture and allergens research is critical. Proteomics provides a unique insight, as it can reveal biological mechanisms helping you understand plant biology such as stress response, development, physiology, and modulate synthetic biology. Proteomics also provides tools to investigate digestion systems, e.g., targeting digestive bi-products of the common allergen gluten.

If you’d like to learn more, we are happy to discuss your project and help you get the most out of your plant-based proteome analysis.

Let’s discuss your project

Guiding you from sample to biology

Our experts are ready to help you with your plant-based proteomics project. Ideally, we set up an online meeting where we get to learn about your project. Here, we discuss the different options to reach your aim.

Sample preparation and Mass Spectrometry

Plant-based proteomics offers various approaches

When working with plants, the research aim can be very different, e.g., modeling a biological mechanism driving a synthetic biology system or investigating the digestion of gluten. Proteomics offers various approaches with different targets, opportunities, and limitations. In our initial meeting, to learn about your aim and explore the options, we can provide you with the different approaches pros and cons to ensure that the aim and analytic method align.

Sample preparation for plant-based proteomics

Proteins extraction from plant studies is not always trivial. Biogenity offers several Standard Operating Procedures to ensure the proper method for the plant-based material. We are also happy to receive the protein extract if you have your preferred protein extraction methods. We will handle your samples with care and give you complete transparency so you know what methods have been used.

Proteome analysis with the latest mass spectrometers

At Biogenity, we provide you with the best tools to identify and quantify the proteins in your sample. The Orbitrap Exploris 480 and Orbitrap Eclipse Tribrid provide state-of-the-art scan speed and sensitivity, allowing us to deliver you deep proteome coverage. If you’d like to see the complete platform list, follow this link.

The right instrument for the research aim

The various research aims can result in various challenges. Having different instruments allows for tailoring the instrument's use to your need. Whether you are looking for high sensitivity and accuracy to detect small changes in low abundant proteins or looking for budget-friendly methods for less complex samples, we have you covered.

Data analysis, including report, figures, and tables

Visualisation of your plant-based proteome analysis

Biogenity's data analysis lets you discover the biological systems and which pathways the regulated proteins can be annotated. We provide you with an easy-to-follow report, giving you an excellent overview of your data. We can also investigate the appearance of specific proteins or peptides. You will receive a vast abundance of figures and tables, providing you with all the material needed to include the results for reporting and presentations of your data.

Interactive plots to highlight signaling pathways

With our bioinformatic data analysis, you will also get interactive plots that allow you to explore the signaling pathways that are enriched in your data. It lets you take the regulated proteins into perspective, showing which biological pathways or biological processes are potentially up or down-regulated. This helps you get a good understanding of what is happening in the different conditions.

Delivery and discussion

Delivered directly to your inbox

When your plant-based proteome analysis is ready, we deliver it directly to your inbox. Your data and reports are easy to access and secured with encryption and password protection.

You can receive your sample leftovers sent by courier, or Biogenity can safely destroy them after project completion. It is entirely up to you.

Plant a tree with Biogenity and One Tree Planted

Partnering with One Tree Planted, we want to work towards a brighter future with better treatment for diseases and a healthy planet to enjoy life. For us, our children, grandchildren, and the generations to come.

Biogenity donates a dozen trees for every project delivered to support local communities, reforestation in the Amazon rainforest, and reduce CO2 emissions. See how we are making a difference together.

Post-consultation and discussion

It is important to us that you get the most out of your experiment, which is why we always offer a post-consultation where you can ask all your questions about the results. Together, we ensure that you have the best prerequisite for your further research. The consultation can also be used to explore the next step, whether you are looking to expand the project with additional omics studies or validate the results.

What you can expect:

  • Explanation of the different steps in the sample analysis
  • Discussion of the data
  • Explanation of the different steps in the data analysis
  • Q&A to the report
