Burnum-Johnson KE, Conrads TP, Drake RR, Herr AE, Iyengar R, Kelly RT, Lundberg E, MacCoss MJ, Naba A, Nolan GP, et al. New Views of Old Proteins: Clarifying the Enigmatic Proteome. Molecular & Cellular Proteomics. 2022;21 (7).

All human diseases involve proteins, yet our current tools to characterize and quantify them are limited. To better elucidate proteins across space, time, and molecular composition, we provide a >10 years of projection for technologies to meet the challenges that protein biology presents. With a broad perspective, we discuss grand opportunities to transition the science of proteomics into a more propulsive enterprise. Extrapolating recent trends, we describe a next generation of approaches to define, quantify, and visualize the multiple dimensions of the proteome, thereby transforming our understanding and interactions with human disease in the coming decade.
