Overview

The last few years have seen an unprecedented drive toward the application of proteomics to resolving challenging biomedical and biochemical tasks. Separation techniques combined with modern mass spectrometry are playing a central role in this drive. This book discusses the increasingly important role of mass spectrometry in proteomic research, and emphasizes recent advances in the existing technology and describes the advantages and pitfalls as well.
* Provides a scientifically valid method for analyzing the approximatey 500,000 proteins that are encoded in the human genome
* Explains the hows and whys of using mass spectrometry in proteomic analysis
* Brings together the latest approaches combining separation techniques and mass spectrometry and their application in proteome analysis
* Comments on future challenges and how they may be addressed
* Includes sections on troubleshooting

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)
