Practical sections will be carried out on saffron samples. In addition, gel scanning, analysis and comparison as well as protein identification from tryptic digestions will be practically demonstrated. Total number of admitted candidate trainees will be 18, with 9 that will be reimbursed by COST office and 2 by the Italian Mass Spectrometry Society. Only 13 trainees will be admitted to both oral and practical activities.
