Biological Science, Biochemistry, Genetics, Biotechnology, Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Immunology - Proteins
Proteome is the set of proteins which is produced by an organism or a system. The large scale study of these protein structures is termed as proteomics. It involves the application of mass spectrometry, protein fractionation techniques and bioinformatics. Proteomics has enabled the identification of a vast array of proteins. This differs with time and unique requirements, or stresses, that a cell or organism undergoes. The processing and analysis of proteomics data is a difficult process but can result in the discovery of new disease biomarkers for clinical and diagnostic applications. Proteomics is a multidisciplinary field which has benefitted greatly from the genetic information of various genome projects. The topics included in this book on proteomics are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. The extensive content of this book provides the readers with a thorough understanding of the subject. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make this book an invaluable source of knowledge.
