Proteomics: Methods Express identifies the most powerful new technologies and presents them in a way that allows their robust implementation.
The focus is on proteomic methods and strategies that are reliable and of general applicability. Each chapter presents descriptions of what can, and cannot, be achieved with the relevant procedures so that readers can make informed judgments prior to establishing the methods in-house.
Every chapter discusses the merits and limitations of various approaches then provides tried-and-tested protocols with hints and tips for success and troubleshooting for when things go wrong.
