Themed collection Proteomics
Inductive proteomics and large dataset collections
Inductive reasoning has been the corner stone of a large plethora of proteomics investigations, shifting the a priori paradigm of classical cellular and molecular biology to the experimental observation of protein modulation. These studies are now providing better definitions of their application framework.
