This session will focus on the WCM-Qatar Genomics Core's method for mapping protein-protein interactions using next-generation sequencing technologies like Illumina and Oxford Nanopore. This approach allows for detailed analysis at both the protein domain level and broader studies involving hundreds of proteins. The session will cover case studies in cancer pathway analysis, the impact of SNPs on protein interactions, and target discovery in infectious diseases, highlighting the system's broad application in biomedical research. Additionally, information will be provided on how researchers can access this technology through collaboration or as a service.
