Introducing Proteomics: From concepts to sample separation, mass spectrometry and data analysis (0470035234) cover image


Introducing Proteomics gives a concise and coherent overview of every aspect of current proteomics technology, which is a rapidly developing field that is having a major impact within the life and medical sciences.

This student-friendly book, based on a successful course developed by the author, provides its readers with sufficient theoretical background to be able to plan, prepare, and analyze a proteomics study.

The text covers the following:

  • Separation Technologies
  • Analysis of Peptides/Proteins by Mass Spectrometry
  • Strategies in Proteomics

This contemporary text also includes numerous examples and explanations for why particular strategies are better than others for certain applications. In addition, Introducing Proteomics includes extensive references and a list of relevant proteomics information sources; essential for any student.

This no-nonsense approach to the subject tells students exactly what they need to know, leaving out unnecessary information. The student companion site enhances learning and provides answers to the end of chapter problems.

"I think this book will be a popular and valuable resource for students and newcomers to the field who would like to have an overview and initial understanding of what proteomics is about. The contents are well organized and address the major issues."
Professor Walter Kolch, Director, Systems Biology Ireland & Conway Institute, University College Dublin
