Introduction

This volume brings current knowledge of proteomics technologies and related developments with special reference to diseases caused by microbes. The editor has compiled chapters written by expert academicians which distill the information about useful methods in microbial proteomics for the benefit of readers. Chapters cover several methods used to investigate the microbial proteome and special topics such as antimicrobial drug resistance mechanisms, biomarker developments, post translational modifications.

Key Features:

-overview of several biochemical methods in proteomics

-full-color, high quality images of the most frequent technologies and applications

-concise, well organized, and didactic format

-updates in basic applied information

-bibliographic references

-information on proteomics for tuberculosis treatment

This reference work is intended for researchers seeking information on laboratory techniques applied in proteomics research and microbiology.

Preface

We are honored to contribute to the information and updates on current and future developments in proteomics for young researchers around the world. We have attempted to distill the current knowledge of proteomics technologies and development with special reference to microbe’s related diseases. This volume of e-book includes various contributors from India which have been affiliated to the well known Indian Institutes.

It is divided into three volumes: Volume I, Microbial Proteomics: Development in technologies and applications; Volume II, and Volume III, will be proposed in the near future. This eBook contains full-color, high quality images of the most frequent technologies and applications with a brief and comprehensive review of microbe related diseases. Each chapter includes its novelty towards the development of proteomics technologies and applications. The format is concise, well organized, and didactic, without being exhaustive. I hope and expect that this volume will facilitate in providing updated basic and specific information to young researchers.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

I would like to express my gratitude to the Indian proteomics experts (Dr. Deepa Bisht, Prof. Sanjeeva Srivastava, Dr. Suman Thakur, and Prof. Bishwajit Kundu), they provided me a positive attitude to think out of the box and sustainable support with English composition and edition. I also acknowledge Dr. Srikanth Tripathy, Dr. Krishnamurthy Venkatesan, Dr. Nirmala Deo, Dr. Shripad A. Patil, and Prof. Asad U. Khan for their positive support. I would also like to express my sincere thanks to my friends and colleagues without whose contribution; it would not have been possible to complete this project. I also want to thank the staff of Bentham Science for their help and support and giving me this opportunity to publish this eBook. I also thanks the ICMR and SERB for providing funds and fellowships for my research.

DEDICATION

This volume of the Ebook series is especially dedicated to Dr. Deepa Bisht, Ph.D., Scientist E, at ICMR-National JALMA Institute for Leprosy and Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Agra, India. She always inspires me to work hard, try to do my best, and think out of the box. She guided me during my doctoral and post doctoral research; and has been my mentor and treats me in a friendly manner. She is a recognized Indian scientist in the area of M. tuberculosis proteomics research.
