Before you register below, make sure you are a YPIC member by filling out this form: https://goo.gl/forms/FKza2CUC1Kr1YHPL2 It is free of charge and it gives access to a survey asking you what YOU want US to address in the upcoming years https://goo.gl/forms/9gOhlR3JfcrGkBjt2 And at LinkedInn we aim at becoming a job hub for proteomics researchershttps://www.linkedin.com/groups/12004091
But above all, go and have a look on Facebook to feel the Buzz: https://www.facebook.com/pg/EuYPIC/
And what is that challenge exactly? It is actually quite easy! First, team up with maximum 2 other, complementary colleagues (mass spectrometrists, bioinformaticians, wet lab scientist,...). When registered with your team of 3 below, we will send you a mixture of synthetic peptides, which you analyze as you see fit (no restrictions here) in order to decipher the sentence formed by those peptides! It is not so much about finding all the words encoded in these peptides, as it is about finding the book this quotation comes from. As for any scientific challenge, we want you to present your methodologies and results in a short manuscript according to the rules of publication. At the end of the ride, you will have gone through a scientific challenge just like the ones to meet in everyday life. This way, we can use your experiences to not only debrief on the outcome of the game but equally use it as a stepping stone for a discussion/workshop on real life in science at HUPO 2017, in Dublin. Everyone can exchange on their experience there, both in the game and IRL! And of course, we will award the winning team with a prize. Just to be clear: you do not have to be present at HUPO in order to win the prize! Everyone can compete!
You want to take part in this great adventure!? You just have to fill in this registration form before August 20 and we will send you the synthetic peptides shortly! You have until September 10 to submit the manuscript.

PS: PLEASE SEND US A CONFIRMATION E_MAIL WHEN THE PEPTIDES HAVE ARRIVED!
The challenge ends at September 10 2017
