Introduction to Proteomics
Principles and Applications
by Nawin C. Mishra

Introduction to Proteomics provides a highly authoritative introduction to the promising and fast-advancing field of proteomics, examining the role proteomics plays in the study of biological systems in general and disease in particular. It helps readers understand the structure, function, and interactions of proteins and how this knowledge is used for identifying diseases and developing new drugs.

Topics covered include:

  • Easily accessible overview of the principles of proteomics
  • Coverage of real-world, cutting-edge medical applications, including personalized medicine
  • Clear guidelines on how to operate the complex instrumentation involved in proteomics
  • Discussion of the future of proteomics
