The availability of genome sequences has revolutionized biology and in particular proteomics.

With the increasing speed and resolving power of the latest mass spectrometers, comprehensive proteome coverage has become a (not to distant) reality. However mapping the increasing numbers of post-translational modifications on the proteome and identifying protein-protein interactions in the context of host microbe interactions remains a formidable challenge that keeps us from truly understanding signal transduction and plant immunity from a network biology perspective.

The proteomics team at TSL addresses this challenge through collaborative projects using our new discovery proteomics platform, the Orbitrap Fusion from Thermo Fisher, and applying targeted proteomics approaches on our Xevo TSQ triple quadrupole (Waters).
