Proteomics provides an introductory insight on proteomics, discussing the basic principles of the field, how to apply specific technologies and instrumentation, and example applications in human health and diseases. With helpful study questions, this textbook presents an easy to grasp and solid overview and understanding of the principles, guidelines, and especially the complex instrumentation operations in proteomics for new students and research scientists. Written by a leader in proteomics studies,
Proteomics offers an expert perspective on the field and the future of proteomics.
