Proteomics: an evolving technology in Laboratory Medicine

J Akhter, WA Tamimi, AE Fatih, DJ Venter

Abstract


The rapid developments in both genomics and proteomics
will allow scientists to define the molecular pathways in normal and
diseased cells. With these models, researchers will have the ability to
predict previously unknown interactions and verify such predictions
experimentally. Novel proteins, cellular functions, and pathways will also
be unravelled. It is hoped that understanding the connections between
cellular pathways and the ability to identify their associated biomarkers
will greatly reduce the suffering and loss of life due to diseases.

KEY WORDS: Proteomics; Laboratory medicine
