Proteomic applications in medicine

 Guest editors: Sabine Bahn and Paul Guest

The application of proteomic technologies to clinical specimens has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of many diseases. From biomarker discovery and validation to personalized therapies, proteomic techniques allow a greater understanding of the dynamic processes involved in disease, increasing the power of prediction, diagnosis and prognosis. Genome Medicine presents a series dedicated to proteomic applications in medicine.
