Introduction to Proteomics: Principles and Applications (0471754021) cover image
A world-class, concise guide to all things proteomics

This book provides a highly authoritative introduction to the promising and fast-advancing field of proteomics, examining the role proteomics plays in the study of biological systems in general and disease in particular. It helps readers understand the structure, function, and interactions of proteins and how this knowledge is used for identifying diseases and developing new drugs.

Nawin Mishra, a world-renowned speaker and leader in proteomics studies who has worked with the late Nobel Laureate E. L. Tatum when proteomics was in its infancy, offers an expert perspective on the entire field, including:

  • Easily accessible overview of the principles of proteomics

  • Coverage of real-world, cutting-edge medical applications, including personalized medicine

  • Clear guidelines on how to operate the complex instrumentation involved in proteomics

  • Discussion of the future of proteomics

Complete with handy study questions and assuming only a basic understanding of biology, Introduction to Proteomics is an invaluable reference for novices and research scientists alike.
