  • advancing technologies for spatial and temporal proteomics - link between expressed genes and phenotypic outcomes;
  • spatial proteomics, location of proteins - within a cell, three-dimensional shape of a protein;
  • moving from a static “snap-shot” of system - to dynamic processes, sophisticated analytical and bioinformatics resources;
  • spatial proteome, fundamental goals - of biological research, understanding protein relationship in complex organisms;
  • proteomics, defining performance characteristics of muscle;
  • fractions, analyzed by 1DGE - and Western blotting, mitochondria enriched three-to-fourfold;
  • temporal proteomics - and temporal fluctuations, resulting from development;
  • protein abundance modulation - mediated by posttranscriptional control of translation, or protein PTM and degradation;
  • combining spatial and temporal proteomics - proteomic approach, studying chicken cardiovascular system;
  • animal proteomics, expanding field - new opportunities, for understanding basic biology
