Proteomic Techniques

To date, the most widely utilized format for proteomics has been two-dimensional (2D) electrophoresis, a technique that has been used for the separation of charged biomolecules since the 1970s. The "-omics" suffix was only coined in 1993 (Wilkins) when informatic and technological advances in the form of large biological databases and peptide mass spectrometry (MS) were combined to generate protein annotation on a large scale. The potential was immediately clear: this new discipline could be employed to directly detect variations in expression, modification, or isoform of proteins when comparing normal versus diseased or treated samples. Other formats have also been explored, including "lab-on-a-chip" quantitative microarrays through to straightforward data-acquisition techniques, which preclude sample comparison in favor of higher throughput.
