Karl Mechtler

IMP Protein Chemistry, Vienna Biocenter Core Facilities. Vienna, Austria

Mechtler, from the Vienna Biocenter Core Facilities, in Austria, leads the Protein Chemistry Facility. They offer services such as protein identification, characterization of posttranslational modifications, protein quantitation and the respective data interpretation. Additionally, their facility provides peptide synthesis and affinity purification of antibodies. They operate several chromatography systems for both protein and peptide separations and a number of state-of-the-art mass spectrometers. To keep their technology platforms competitive, they constantly establish and develop novel protocols. Currently, they focus on methods for improving the sensitivity of protein identification, on protein quantification and cross-linking technology. They also develop bioinformatics tools for data interpretation. He has been invited by Eduard Sabidó (CRG).
