Recent developments in “omics” technologies have revolutionised how biomedical research is conducted. These approaches enable unbiased analyses of biological samples and can be used to generate novel hypotheses. Proteins are the molecular effectors of cells, and mRNA assessment merely represents a proxy to estimate the final levels of the protein product. Moreover, genomics does not provide information about the post-translational modifications of proteins or their interactions. Thus, direct analysis of proteins is paramount to our understanding of how cells work. Proteomics is an emerging and multi-disciplinary field that aims to analyse the complex regulation of the proteome and its impact on disease. The CNIO Proteomics Core Unit provides state-of-the-art mass spectrometry-based proteomics to scientists and research groups in order to better understand, at the proteome level, the molecular basis of cancer.
