Recent advances in large scale DNA sequencing technology have made it possible to sequence the entire genome of an organism. Attention is now turning to the analysis of the product of the genome, the proteome, which is the set of proteins being expressed by a cell. Mass spectrometry is the method of choice for the rapid large-scale identification of these proteomes and their modifications. This is the first book to extensively cover the applications of mass spectrometry to proteome research.
