Scientists have issued guidance on analytical chemistry

Jun 13 2011

A team of scientists have published a guide for the uses of analytical chemistry within experiments.

In the study, published by the Proteome Science journal, the team discussed the fact that mass-spectrometry-based proteomics has improved to such a point that it is now possible to undertake a comprehensive analysis of the whole proteome of a cell in a single experiment.

The team suggested that although different studies investigate a vast number of different queries and hypotheses, the fundamental questions remain the same – which proteins are "differently regulated" in certain conditions and are there groups which have similar abundance ratios?

As part of the guidelines, the scientists have given advice about how new studies can approach the answering of the two questions and show a comprehensive list of how different analytical chemistry methods compare.

"This work provides guidance through the jungle of computational methods to analyze mass spectrometry-based isotope-labeled datasets and recommends an effective and easy-to-use evaluation strategy," the team said.
