Simultaneous Qualitative and Quantitative Proteomics Using Tandem Mass Spectrometry
Quantitative proteomics aims to provide large-scale qualitative and quantitative data about every protein in a biological sample. However, drawbacks associated with current techniques can make it difficult to generate the data required. Research scientists have recently developed a new approach that allows highly multiplexed high-resolution MRM quantitation of most of the detectable proteins in a sample in a single analysis. More...
