Cancer proteomics to improve therapy. Proteomics is a collective name of several techniques and methods for global analysis of proteins. Proteins are vital for any living organism and have numerous important functions including: accelerating chemical reactions as enzymes, serving as hormonal signaling molecules, providing recognition sites for the immune system, and serving as building blocks responsible for maintaining the cell's form and structure.
