Principles of Proteomics, Second Edition, provides a concise and user-friendly introduction to the diverse technologies used for the large-scale analysis of proteins, as well as their applications, and their impact in areas such as drug discovery, agriculture, and the fight against disease.
Proteomics is a fast-advancing field in which researchers seek to capture all the proteins in the cell and characterize them in ever more detail. Principles of Proteomics has been fully updated to reflect the most recent developments in the field without losing its focus on the underlying principles. With worked examples, case studies profiling both established and emerging technologies, and further reading lists for each chapter, Principles of Proteomics is an ideal introduction for students, researchers and those working in the industry.
"The layout of this book is excellent, with nice, highly readable tables and very good illustrations, which help the reader to grasp immediately the sense of the written text. I highly recommend it to any newcomer in the field and I believe it could well be adopted in university courses dealing with proteomics."

"This is the ideal textbook for anyone wishing to gain a well-rounded appreciation of established and developing large-scale protein analysis technologies. It equips readers with the necessary knowledge to understand functioning principles while providing concrete examples illustrating applications of these technologies. Anyone considering proteomic approaches should explore this book -- with its broad topic coverage, it serves as the perfect introduction to this fast-evolving technological area. Since this field has drastically changed over the last decade, the second edition is certainly warranted." -Doody's
