Proteins and Proteomics: A Laboratory Manual is the first authoritative and wide-ranging protocol-based approach to proteomics and offers a logical strategy for analyzing proteomes. The manual contains numerous methods for preparing and analyzing protein samples, ranging from electrophoresis and mass spectrometry to protein chips and informatics. The theory underlying these techniques is explained, as well as their applications.
About the Author
Professor Simpson is Head of the Joint Proteomics Laboratory of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, and a Research Professor of the University of Melbourne. He is an executive committee member of the International Association for Protein Structure Analysis (IAPS), and the recently established Human Proteomics Organization (HUPO). He is also chairperson of the HUPO Committee for Resources and Technology. Additionally, Professor Simpson is President of the Asia-Oceania HUPO committee. On a national level, he is President of the internationally recognized Lorne Protein Conference. In recognition of his achievements, he was elected an Honorary Member of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 1996, awarded the AMRAD Pharmacia Medal from the Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and was an elected councillor of the Protein Society (1993-1996). In 1995, he was elected as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (FTSE). He is regarded as a leader in the use of proteome analysis technology and has been instrumental in its introduction to Australia.

"Proteins and Proteomics: A Laboratory Manual is an invaluable information tool both for the experienced protein chemist who bravely ventures into the new world of proteomics and for the novice to proteins and proteomes. By focusing on what is currently considered the bedrock of proteomics technologies, Professor Simpson ensures that—in spite of the rapid advances that characterize contemporary proteomics research—this volume will remain relevant and current for years to come."
