"Over the last several years, new emphasis has been placed on the application of proteomics to perform demanding biomedical and biochemical tasks. Proteomics Today clearly describes the contributions of the latest approaches - separation techniques, modern mass spectrometry, two-dimensional electrophoresis, and microarray technology - in meeting these challenges. The emerging roles of imaging mass spectrometry and protein interaction maps are also addressed." A must-have guide for scientists and laboratory technicians who study proteins in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, Proteomics Today includes helpful introductions to chapters, complete references, plus insights into future challenges. More than any other resource, Proteomics Today explains how mass spectrometry and its associated tools can turn today's proteomic research challenges into tomorrow's biomedical opportunities.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I highly recommend this book for anyone planning to get involved in proteomics technology or for one who is already involved…it provides an entertaining insight on the field..." (Microbe, March 2006)

"...a must reference for anyone interested in proteomics. For me, if Proteomics Today is not in my backpack it will be within arms reach as a great reference to have on hand as I plan future experiments." (Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, January 2006)

"…the book is highly recommended to all scientists interested in protein separation science, and well-thumbed copies will certainly be present in every self-respecting proteomic laboratory." (Proteomics, July 2005)

‘This book is well written and thus easy to read.  It contains valuable information and extensive references for readers from a variety of backgrounds.’ (Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, 12 January 2007)
