Abstract

The techniques in proteomics involve the identification of proteins using mass spectrometry. In this section, the procedures needed to (1) prepare proteomics samples, (2) analyze them by mass spectrometry, and (3) interpret the spectra and identify the component proteins are described.

Keywords:

  • proteomics;
  • mass spectrometry;
  • peptide mass fingerprinting;
  • tandem mass spectrometry;
  • ionization
