NEEDHAM, Mass. - July 30, 2014 - PRLog -- Over 1,200 participants will convene in San Diego for CHI’s 14th Annual PepTalk event, one of the largest gatherings of protein science researchers in the United States. John R. Yates, Ph.D. of The Scripps Research Institute will deliver a plenary keynote address “From Yeast to the Brain: Advances in Proteomics” on Wednesday, January 21.

Dr. Yates research interests include development of integrated methods for tandem mass spectrometry analysis of protein mixtures, bioinformatics using mass spectrometry data and biological studies involving proteomics. He is the lead inventor of the SEQUEST software for correlating tandem mass spectrometry data to sequences in the database and developer of the shotgun proteomics technique for the analysis of protein mixtures. His laboratory has developed the use of proteomic techniques to analyze protein complexes, posttranslational modifications, organelles and quantitative analysis of protein expression for the discovery of new biology. Many proteomic approaches developed by Yates have become a national and international resource to many investigators in the scientific community. He has received the American Society for Mass Spectrometry research award, the Pehr Edman Award in Protein Chemistry, the American Society for Mass Spectrometry Biemann Medal, the HUPO Distinguished Achievement Award in Proteomics, Herbert Sober Award from the ASBMB and the Christian Anfinsen Award from The Protein Society. He was ranked by Citation Impact, Science Watch as one of the Top 100 Chemists for the decade, 2000-2010. He was #1 on a List of Most Influential in Analytical Chemistry compiled by The Analytical Scientist 10/30/2013 and is on the List of Most Highly Influential Biomedical Researchers, 1996-2011, European J. Clinical Investigation 2013, 43, 1339-1365. He has published 751 scientific articles with ~57,000 citations, and an H index 119.
