Proteomics Discovery & Function

The Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery (DAVID) it provides a comprehensive set of functional annotation tools for investigators to understand biological meaning behind large list of genes. Biomarkers (short for biological markers) are biological measures of a biological state. Biomarker discovery is a medical term describing the process by which biomarkers are discovered. Many commonly used blood tests in medicine are biomarkers. A fundamental goal of cell biology is to define the functions of proteins in the context of compartments that organize them in the cellular environment. Actin-binding proteins (also known as ABP) are proteins that bind to actin.

In general, proteomics seeks to detect and quantify as many proteins as possible.Proteins are the products of genes, the machinery of the cells in our bodies. When genes are disrupted, the proteins are also affected. When pathogens infect us, causing disease, proteins play a key role in signaling the presence and ridding us of these invaders.
