and functional genomics are currently the key research strategies mapping
protein function and biological processes in a high-throughput mode. These
methodologies pave the road for a greater understanding of intracellular and
physiological mechanisms in a systematic manner as well as for the
identification of new targets for drug development.
These new approaches encompass multiple stepwise procedures starting from the Preparation
of Starting Material (be it in the form of serum/plasma, tissues or
cultured cells, or even isolated cell compartments), followed by Rapid
Separation Methods and/or Protein Fractionation, Array Analysis (DNA/RNA or
protein) or Mass Spectrometric Analysis (LC-MS, MS-MS), Bio-Informatics
Manipulations of Data (using available key software tools and developed
project-specific software tools, as well as relevant DNA/protein databases), Project-Based
Data Interpretation (relative to molecular interactions, post-translational
modifications, and, for cellular proteins, to intracellular localization), to
finally High-Throughput Target Validation.
Our team of Ph.D. research scientists (with extensive academic and industry
know-how) can help you in all facets of Discovery Methodologies described above
including High-throughput Protein Data Acquisition, Validation and
Interpretation, as well as Proteomics Platform Development.
