The Proteomics Facility provides state-of-the-art mass spectrometry analysis of proteins for both basic and clinical cancer research. We strive to serve all internal and external investigators by providing access to mass-spectrometry based proteomics technologies and services.
What is Proteomics?
- Proteomics is the study of proteomes or the systematic analysis of proteins.
- As defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary: "a branch of biotechnology concerned with applying the techniques of molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics to analyze the structure, function and interactions of the proteins produced by the genes of a particular cell, tissue or organism, with organizing the information in databases, and with applications of the data (as in medicine or biology)".
- Proteomics includes not only quantitative and qualitative analysis of all expressed proteins, but also traditional protein structural studies such as protein identification, post-translational modification, protein-protein interactions, and other functional interests related with protein structure.
- Common sample types include gels, solutions, immunoprecipitates, and other protein-containing materials.
