Issue no. 21 is a regular issue with “Emphasis on Nucleic Acids” and comprises 17 contributions distributed over 4 distinct parts. Part I is on nucleic acids and has 8 research articles on various aspects of nucleic acid research including an automated instrument for human STR identification, a high resolution chip-CE assay for rapid detection of gene mutations and amplifications, a fluorescence-based sequence-specific primer PCR, pulsed field CE for RNA separation, methylated DNA immunoprecipitation sequencing, PCR-SSCP, DNA methylation, and analysis of SNPs. Part II has 4 research articles dealing with studies on protein and proteomics analysis, e.g., microchip IEF, CE analysis of microheterogeneous glutelin subunits in rice, protein precipitation methods and prefractionation of plasma for proteomic analysis. Part III has 2 contributions that describe the separation of the enantiomers of DL-isocitric acid by CE and the analysis of trace degradation products of S-adenosylmethionine, which are decarboxylated diastereomers, by CE. The last 3 articles in this issue (Part IV) are on novel methodologies for facile interfacing of CE with MS, electrokinetic chromatography for the determination of contaminants and impurities of heparin samples, and particle electrophoresis. As such, issue no. 21 is packed with the latest developments and innovations in the field.

Featured articles include:

An automated instrument for Human STR identification: design, characterization, and experimental validation

Miniature flowing atmospheric-pressure afterglow ion source for facile interfacing of capillary electrophoresis with mass spectrometry

Capillary electrophoresis for analysis of microheterogeneous glutelin subunits in rice (Oryza sativa L.)
