  • bioinformatics in animal proteomics - methodologies, analyzing protein sets in complex samples;
  • protein identification in proteomics - by MS, in a single stage;
  • tandem MS, single peptide ion - from MS1 stage, fragmented prior to mass analysis in MS2 stage;
  • genome sequencing, acceleration - new technological developments, “next-generation” sequencers;
  • proteomic data to genome annotation - “proteogenomics”;
  • proteomics analysis pipelines and data repositories - as Genome Annotating Proteomics Pipeline (GAPP) and PeptideAtlas;
  • intron-spanning peptides, unique to specific protein - in proteomic analysis of alternative splicing;
  • proteomic analysis, using - one-dimensional gels, 2D gels and multidimensional protein identification technology [MuDPIT];
  • alternative possibility, and cross-species identification - spectral libraries and profiles;
  • difficulties of applying proteomics - and next-generation sequencing, in easing problems
