Biggest game changers
In the field of proteomics, the game changers are threefold. First, the amazing increase in overall performance (resolution, sensitivity, accuracy of the instruments). Second, the emergence of a highly interactive academic and private sector software development community who have worked to develop, test, benchmark and disseminate generally accessible software tools and make them interoperable. Third, the development of conceptually new workflows that support the exploration of entirely new biological questions.

Why omics?
In the 1990s I worked at the Department of Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Washington in Seattle, which was one of the leading genomics departments at the time. In that environment and working on protein analytics, it was an obvious question to ask – could we come up with techniques that would, at some point, allow us to study the proteome in a comprehensive manner? We have been pursuing this goal ever since.

The Magnificent Tens

The Magnificent Tens
After 2016’s celebration of women in analytical science, we return to the Top 100 for 2017.
But there’s a twist. This summer, we asked you to nominate scientists in ten categories – from the stars of separation science, to omics explorers, to the mentors training the next generation.
