Proteomics: A Sharper Focus, Science
Excerpts: The large-scale proteomic surveys coordinated by the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) have a long way to go to produce their promised medical benefits ( see main text). But more-focused proteomic projects may have a more immediate impact. Researchers around the globe are hard at work using proteomic technologies to identify the proteins that make up the mitochondria, the cell's energy powerhouse, and other subcellular structures. (...) how proteomic tools can lead to crucial new insights into cell biology as well as potential medical benefits.
