SELDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry Protein Data
The term proteome is used to denote the set of proteins encoded by a genome, and proteomics is the study of the expression and interactions of the proteins, which can depend on many factors such as cell type, treatment, tissue type, developmental state, and disease state. Conceptually, this is similar to the transcriptomics technologies discussed in Chapters 2-4; however, due to the more complicated chemistry of proteins, compared to RNA, the field has a different and diverse set of technologies and produces a wide range of specific challenges. Here we discuss one particular mass spectrometry technology.
