The term "proteomics" was first defined by Marc Wilkins in 1996 (Wilkins et al., 1996,
Nature Biotechnology 14: 61-65) as an analogy with genomics, the study of genes. Proteomics is the large-scale
study of proteins, particularly their structures and functions. Proteins are vital
parts of living organisms and are the main components of the physiological metabolic
pathways of cells. The proteome is the entire complement of proteins including their
modifications produced by an organism or system. The proteome of a cell will vary
with time and distinct requirements or stresses.
Our mission is to provide all scientists interested in proteomic research with affordable,
reliable and relatively fast mass spectrometry-based proteomic services. We welcome
Our core instrumentation is the ProteomeX Station, which includes aFinnigan LTQ XLLinear Ion Trap Mass Spectrometer and integrated LC system (ThermoFisher).
