  • proteomics in animal health and disease - protein analysis, studies of animal health and disease;
  • proteomic analysis nature, in animal science - objectives of studies;
  • current proteomic approaches, in animal health and disease - focus on biological fluid, tissue;
  • investigations into plasma - or serum proteomes of animals;
  • investigations, using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2DE) - and MALDI-TOF-MS, deriving novel biomarkers in human medicine;
  • proteins, identified by 2DE and MS - serum or plasma from cattle, swine, horse or cats;
  • proteomics of immune system of animals - using proteomics, wide applications;
  • proteomics, for investigating muscle of animal tissue - economics, of meat-producing farm animals;
  • caseins, abundant protein in milk - subject of proteomic investigations;
  • continued sequencing of genome - from animal species, proteomics in identifying specific proteins, and treatment regimes
