Separation Science and Proteomics: Current Trends and New Approaches provides readers with the most advanced theories and methodologies on the most important separation methods contributing to current proteomics. Intended to be a practical reference that meets the needs of everyday practitioners, it also serves as a go-to guide for scientists focused on the theory of separation science, new methods development, and new equipment design. Future progress in proteomics is connected to the introduction of new and more powerful techniques and the perfection of techniques proposed over the past several decades, and an in-depth understanding of physical mechanisms for a particular separation method or methods combination is crucial for scientists who need to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary methods. Authored by a chemist who has more than 20 years of experience in separation science and proteomics, this book offers readers insights and solutions to the separation mechanism of a full range of related techniques and complex problems, including the concentration distribution of analyzed protein during IEF separation in natural or IPG gradients or detailed mechanisms of electrophoresis in thermal gradients. Covers theoretical aspects, such as resolving power limitations as flow rate and electric current density reach technical limits Provides a critical review of newly proposed separation methods and approaches, including a range of equilibrium gradient methods Addresses the physical aspects important for optimization of the separation process, including acid–base equilibria, dissociation schemes, and chemistry of non-aqueous solutions Analyzes biophysical methods of protein structure analysis and discusses scaling to micro-separations and possible applications of nanotechnologies
Driven by the widespread growth of proteomic practices, protein separation techniques have been refined to minimize variability, optimize particular applications, and adapt to user preferences in the analysis of proteins. Separation Methods in Proteomics provides a comprehensive examination of all major separation techniques for proteomics research. Written as a compilation of hands-on methods exemplified by the work of several recognized leaders in the field, this book may serve as a guide for selection of the optimal separation strategies to solve particular biological problems. Recent progress in the development of robust analytical techniques and instrumentation has created the need for good quality biological samples that are subject to analysis. Emphasizing the importance of sample preparation, the book explains how proteomes can be divided into smaller, less complicated “subproteomes" for individual analysis. It also highlights several hybrid approaches that take into account protein interactions. Including applications of the separation methods currently employed in proteomic analyses for both clinical and basic research, Separation Methods in Proteomics contains practical information that can enhance the current and future endeavors of scientists in proteomics, genomics, transcriptomics, biomarker discovery, and drug discovery.

Introducing Proteomics gives a concise and coherent overview of every aspect of current proteomics technology, which is a rapidly developing field that is having a major impact within the life and medical sciences. This student-friendly book, based on a successful course developed by the author, provides its readers with sufficient theoretical background to be able to plan, prepare, and analyze a proteomics study. The text covers the following: Separation Technologies Analysis of Peptides/Proteins by Mass Spectrometry Strategies in Proteomics This contemporary text also includes numerous examples and explanations for why particular strategies are better than others for certain applications. In addition, Introducing Proteomics includes extensive references and a list of relevant proteomics information sources; essential for any student. This no-nonsense approach to the subject tells students exactly what they need to know, leaving out unnecessary information. The student companion site enhances learning and provides answers to the end of chapter problems. "I think this book will be a popular and valuable resource for students and newcomers to the field who would like to have an overview and initial understanding of what proteomics is about. The contents are well organized and address the major issues." —Professor Walter Kolch, Director, Systems Biology Ireland & Conway Institute, University College Dublin Companion Website www.wiley.com/go/lovric
Edited by the experts and pioneers in the field, this is the first monograph to cover the topic, containing the must-have information hitherto only scattered among journals. Clearly divided into sections on preparation, characterization and modeling, and applications, this is essential reading for chemists, chromatographers, analytical chemists, biochemists and biologists.

Food proteomics is one of the most dynamic and fast-developing areas in food science. The goal of this book is to be a reference guide on the principles and the current and future potential applications of proteomics in food science and technology. More specifically, the book will discuss recent developments and the expected trends of the near future in food proteomics. The book will be divided into two parts. The first part (7 chapters) will focus on the basic principles for proteomics, e.g., sample preparation, such as extraction and separation techniques, analytical instrumentation currently in use, and available databases for peptide and protein identification. The second part of the book (26 chapters) will focus on applications in foods. It will deal with quality issues related to post-mortem processes in animal foods and quality traits for all foods in general, as well as the identification of bioactive peptides and proteins, which are very important from the nutritional point of view. Furthermore, consumers are now extremely susceptible to food safety issues, and proteomics can provide reassurance with different safety aspects, such as food authenticity, detection of animal species in the food, and identification of food allergens. All of these issues will be covered in this book. It is also worth noting that both editors are internationally recognized experts in the field of food science, and both have edited numerous food science books and handbooks.
