7 Milestones That Make Proteomics Possible
List Sep 28, 2018 | by Ruairi J Mackenzie, Science Writer for Technology Networks
Proteomics is the study of the entirety of a cell or tissue’s proteins. Modern-day techniques have made the goal of analyzing proteins at scale an everyday task, but these technologies are built on the foundations of decades of work.
In this list, we explore some of the most important innovations that have led to modern-day proteomic techniques.
Download this list to discover:
- How mass spectrometry has advanced in over 100 years of research
- How techniques like ESI and MALDI changed how proteins were analyzed
- Some of the current-day techniques which have built on these milestones
Part of the "systems biology“ trend, metabolomics research, referring to the study of the entire metabolite profile of an organism, has gained significant momentum in recent years. This list looks at the most commonly used methods in metabolomics research, the advantages and drawbacks of particular methods and
the application of metabolomics research in areas such as toxicology, the cosmetic industry and nutrigenomics.
