Name of national/international infrastructure this infrastructure belongs toBioMS is a geographically distributed infrastructure with established ties to EATRIS, and with collaborations with MAX IV, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (USA), PRO-MS, and similar entities.
DescriptionBioMS is a nationally distributed infrastructure for biological mass spectrometry and proteomics. The nodes offer specialized analytical techniques for the Swedish life science community demands. Currently BioMS has 3 nodes (Lund university, Gothenburg university including Chalmers Tekniska Högskola, and Karolinska Institutet). BioMS is funded by Vetenskapsrådet and the universities of the participating nodes.

Equipment and resourcesThe BioMS national infrastructure enables the cutting-edge mass spectrometry and related advanced technology platforms to be part of research projects across Sweden. BioMS has the hardware, software, and qualified scientists to provide project support.
Services providedCurrent modules representing different mass spectrometry technologies include:
Management of the infrastructureBioMS is governed by a national board with representation from academia and industry. The role of the BioMS Steering Committee includes:
• Decision on the yearly budget distribution
• Approval of business plan, strategic plan and annual report
• Approval of policies for access to the infrastructure
BioMS operations are managed by an operative group with represention from all 3 nodes. The role of the operative group includes:
