Following the announcement of the draft sequence of the human genome and the completion of many others, attention is now increasingly turning to the analysis of the proteins encoded by genomes - proteomics. This is a rapidly emerging research area and this book reviews recent developments in proteomics and compares them with current genomics technologies. The book is written by experts, from academia and industry, who review their area in a concise yet easy to understand style, providing a comprehensive review volume that integrates genomics with proteomics. This is the first book to address the subject at an undergraduate level.
'The editors provide an excellent overview of the current approaches to quantative mRNA analysis … This book represents a worthy attempt to bring the methodology of proteomics to the general and inexperienced researcher.' - Annals of Clinical Biochemistry
