A rapidly expanding field of study in plant science is proteomics. As the editor of this scientific journal featuring the findings of international experts in the field explains, “the proteome comprises all protein species resulting from gene expression in a cell, organelle, tissue or organisms.” Several technological advances that make such work financially and technically possible have led to a great deal of interest in the field. Most of the papers in this book concentrate on specific goals in their methodology. Fellow scientists and postgraduates with interests in the fields of plant biochemistry and physiology will value this update of the current state of research in this specialized area.
