Proteomics in Time and Space

“Proteomics specification in time and space” (PROSPECTS) is a five year collaborative project that commenced early in 2008 and is funded by the Research Directorate of the European Commission under the 7th Research Framework Program. PROSPECTS brings together ten leading research groups from around Europe, as well as Thermo Fisher Scientific, a mass spectrometry instrument manufacturer and chromatography company. The different groups seek new insights into the cellular function of proteins and their aberration during diseases. “We here present a perspective on how the proteomics field is moving beyond simply identifying proteins,” says Matthias Mann. “It now provides powerful tools for characterizing proteome dynamics and thereby creates a new level of proteomics research.” The „Special Issue“ contains a series of 16 original research papers documenting the recent progress in all aspects of proteomic research achieved within PROSPECTS.
