Electrophoresis World-Wide

Isoelfocus is a multimedia interactive computer-aided learning program, which should be a stimulating approach of IEF, before to dive into more refined and exhaustive printed textbooks on the subject. With easy updating and customizing, it lends itself well to teaching. At the heart of IEF methods lies the titration curve, which is the display of the charge behaviour, along the pH gradient, of a protein to be separated. Isoelfocus has thus implemented the titration curve as a comprehensive tool for IEF-based methods.


New FindMod tool for predicting protein modifications at ExPaSY

FindMod predicts potential protein post-translational modifications and single amino acid substitutions in peptides.  Experimentally measured peptide masses are compared with the theoretical peptides calculated from a specified SWISS-PROT/TrEMBL entry or from a user-entered sequence, and mass differences are used to better characterise the protein of interest.

The Laboratory of Analytical Biochemistry, Faculty of Science, Ehime University is dedicated to proteomics research through .Improving the resolution of electrophoresis in protein separation

Proteome Research: New Frontiers in Functional Genomics
Edited by M.R.Wilkins, K.L.Williams, R.D.Appel & D.F.Hochstrasser
"This book, written and edited by those who conceived the notion of proteomics and contributed the most to its development, is the first to offer a comprehensive perspective of the field. It describes authoritatively its origin, fundamentals and background; its methodologies and how the data collected should be analysed, stored, retrieved and applied by the research and industrial scientist as well as the clinician. It eloquently documents how far these new technologies have taken us and where they might lead us in the future".
