In this first book to provide an overview of applications of proteomics in the discovery of new diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic targets, a team of international specialists from research institutions, hospitals and companies contribute with their specific expertise. They cover a wide range of example applications for the most important diseases, such as heart and cardiovascular disorders, cancer, pharmatoxicology, infectious diseases and diseases of the nervous system.
Denis Hochstrasser is an eminent scientist in the field of bioinformatics and proteomics and one of the founders of the Swiss Prot Databank as well as of the Swiss biotech company Genebio.
"In spite of the complexity of many diseases as well as proteomic approaches that may be applied, the style of the book is generally clear and straightforward in its presentation."
"This book is a good reference resource for all academic and other researchers who are interested in how proteomics is applied in biomedicine."
"... a nice overview of biomedical proteomics applications."
"...those new to the field can use the book to quickly catch up on applications of proteomics. ... the book [is also] a great resource for literature and techniques."
Environmental Health Perspectives
"...this book is a compendium of biomedical publications covering a wide range of state-of-the-art proteomic techniques and aimed to give a detailed view what current proteomic technologies can serve for in biomedical research. The clear style of the book and its straightforward presentations provides profound insight to scientists. Furthermore, it serves as a good resource for literature and techniques for academic and other researchers interested in the implementation of proteomics in biomedicine. (...) Overall the editors provide a comprehensive overview on biomedical proteomics applications for both, protein analysts familiar with state-of-the-art proteome technologies as well as physicians in molecular medicine."
