About the Cancer Sample Preparation for Mass Spectrometry Virtual Lab Simulation

The Cancer Sample Preparation for Mass Spectrometry simulation is the first simulation in the Mass Spectrometry series. In the Cancer Sample Preparation for Mass Spectrometry simulation, you will assist in a biopsy on a cancer patient and learn how to prepare the sample for mass spectrometry by extracting its phosphopeptides. Will you be able to identify the cancer stage of the patient by looking at the phosphorylation pattern?
