The ultra-deep proteome - the dawn of the "Post-Proteomic Era

26 May 2017
Dr Roman Fischer QBIOX Colloquium

Proteomics is seen as the next logical step after genomics to understand life processes at the molecular level. With increasing capabilities of modern mass spectrometers the deep proteome (>8000 proteins detected) has become widely accessible, only to be replaced recently by the "Ultra-deep proteome" with ~14000 proteins detected in a single cell line. Furthermore, new data search algorithms and sample preparation methods allow not only to achieve comprehensive sequence coverage for the majority of proteins, but also to detect protein variations and single amino acid polymorphisms in proteins, further linking genomic variation to protein phenotypes. The combination of genomic and proteomic information on individual (patient) level could mark the beginning of the "Post-Proteomic Era".
