This detailed book highlights the diverse techniques and applications of proteomics in an accessible, informative, and concise manner. The collection features sample preparation from distinct extraction, quantification, enrichment, modification, as well as interactome methodology for the in-depth exploration of biological systems, and the application of proteomics to clinical, infectious disease, and agricultural practices. Moreover, cutting-edge bioinformatics tools, encompassing machine learning and data integration strategies, are explored, as are techniques expanding beyond proteomics into the realm of metabolomics. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting known pitfalls.
Comprehensive and practical, Proteomics in Systems Biology: Methods and Protocols emphasizes the importance of proteomics and demonstrates a plethora of approaches for investigating diverse biological entities from a systems perspective.
