  • Computational mass spectrometry, proteomics, and their applications in biology

Research Abstract:

Research in the Goldfarb lab focuses on computational mass spectrometry, proteomics, and their applications in biology. His lab develops open-source solutions for novel data acquisition strategies, data analysis, and visualization tailored to the unique challenges of each experiment. Dr. Goldfarb aims to increase the throughput and reproducibility of large-scale projects with automated pipelines that leverage high-performance computing. Recently his research has concentrated on instrumentation, protein complex identification, and de novo peptide sequencing.
