While proteomics aims to globally identify and measure the abundances of proteins, the challenge of phosphoproteomics is to determine globally the phosphorylation status of proteins present in the cell. Advances in mass spectrometry and developments in phosphopeptide enrichment methodologies is enabling high-throughput global identification and relative quantitation of phosphopeptides.
