Proteins are generally the functional agents in cells and therefore they are a prime focus of biological and medical research. However, their analysis has traditionally been very challenging, especially compared to the great advances made in oligonucleotide-based technologies. Fortunately, this has now changed due to developments in mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics, which is opening up fascinating views into the complexities of the proteome (Cox and Mann, 2011). Technological advances in all areas of the shotgun proteomics pipeline now make it possible to quantify entire proteomes of model organisms such as yeast (de Godoy et al., 2008).
