Proteomics directly detects expression of proteins. Proteome research permits the discovery of new protein markers for diagnostic purposes and of novel molecular targets for drug discovery. Proteomics
1. SWISS-2DPAGE database SWISS-2DPAGE is an annotated two- dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2-D PAGE) database established in 1993. The SWISS-2DPAGE database is maintained by the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, in collaboration with the Central Clinical Chemistry Laboratory of the Geneva University Hospital.

2. PeptIdent PeptIdent is a tool that allows the identification of proteins using pI, MW and peptide mass fingerprinting data. Experimentally measured, user-specified peptide masses are compared with the theoretical peptides calculated for all proteins in the SWISS-PROT/TrEMBL databases.

4. FindMod This tool examines peptide mass fingerprinting data for mass differences between empirical and theoretical peptides. Where mass differences correspond to a post-translational modification (PTM).
Fact: Individual research units would not work any more! Recommendation: Team up! Go beyond your own, your institute, and your country boundaries.
Fact: Genomic data are suppose to reduce time and efforts for preparation of reagents, resources and information. Recommendation: Think big! Search and use data intelligently. Turn attention to complex biology from various angles, i.e. have all needed specialty in your team.
Fact: A mass of data is available freely! Recommendation: Learn how to use! Make use of them to develop technologies.
Fact: Biology world is rapidly changing! Recommendation: Keep up with changes! Re-establish systems with more flexibility and more freedom. Loose regulations for funding, employment, etc. Re-design your research project.
Cautions: One protein with different roles: Alpha-enolase in liver T-crystallin in eye lens One structure in proteins with diverse functions: TIM barrels in isomerases, oxidoreductase and hydrolases. 30% error in automated annotations.
