Proteomics is an emerging field that has been highly enabled by the human genome project. Proteins are the products of genes, the machinery of the cells in our bodies. When genes are disrupted, the proteins are also affected. When pathogens infect us, causing disease, proteins play a key role in signaling the presence and ridding us of these invaders. Almost every process that occurs in our cells – from the metabolization of simple sugar to the division of cells – is dependent on proteins for smooth operation. In general, proteomics seeks to detect and quantify as many proteins as possible.

Mass spectrometry (MS) - based proteomics allows the sensitive and accurate quantification of almost complete proteomes of complex biological fluids and tissues. At the moment, however, the routinely usage of MS-based proteomics is prevented and complicated by the very complex work flow comprising sample preparation, chromatography, MS measurement followed by data processing and evaluation. The new technologies, products and assays developed by Precision Proteomics could help enabling and establishing mass spectrometry (MS) - based proteomics in academic and pharmaceutical proteomics research as well as in clinical diagnostics.

Molecular Medicine promotes the thoughtful of biological mechanism of disease at the cellular and molecular levels for enhanced diagnoses, treatment, and prevention of disease. Proteomics plays an important role in medical research and molecular medicine, such as in drug discovery and diagnostics, because of the link between proteins, genes and diseases, and it is considered to be the next step in modern biology. Proteomics is dynamic compared to genomics because it changes constantly to reflect the cell’s environment. The main objectives in the arena of proteomics are; identifying all proteins, analyse differential protein expression in different samples, characterise proteins by identifying and studying their function and cellular localisation, and recognize protein interaction networks.

Protein expression refers to the way in which proteins are synthesized, modified and regulated in living organisms. In protein research, the term can apply to either the object of study or the laboratory techniques required to manufacture proteins. Protein analysis is the bioinformatics study of protein structure, protein interaction and function using database searches, sequence comparisons, structural and functional predictions.

Personalised medicine aims to tailor treatments to achieve the best outcome for individual patients, rather than treating patients with a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Personalized medicine, also termed precision medicine, is a medical procedure that separates patients into different groups—with medical decisions, practices, interventions and/or products being tailored to the individual patient based on their predicted response or risk of disease.

Biochemistry is the study of the structure and function of biological molecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids. Biochemistry is also used to describe techniques suited to understanding the interactions and functions of biological molecules and it is a laboratory based science that brings together biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can understand and solve biological problems. Biochemistry focuses on processes happening at a molecular level and it focuses on what’s happening inside our cells. It also looks at how cells communicate with each other, for example during growth or fighting illness. Medicine is a broad category but relates to biochemistry on many levels. Doctors and nurses give drugs to patients to help cure a disease or prevent it. This is since when that drug is added to the human system, it alters how other chemicals in the body function, resulting in disease prevention or recovery.
