Joshua Coon's research group has the overarching goal of catalyzing evolution in the rapidly developing field of proteomics and to use these technologies to address fundamental problems in developmental biology. With emphasis on ion chemistry and instrumentation, researchers seek to develop and apply new enabling mass spectrometry-based (MS) proteomic technologies. Research projects in the Coon lab include: (1) instrumentation development, (2) data analysis software design, (3) fundamental ion chemistry studies, and (4) biological applications of the technology.
- Chemical instrumentation including ETD, dissociation, ion/ion reactions. PRM, and theory
- Informatics including molecular identification, quantitation, and data visualization
- Proteomic and metabolomic technologies
