Proteins are complex molecules that catalyze reactions, transmit signals, and create cellular support structures organized in a spatial and temporal manner. A set of proteins is referred to as a proteome when considered globally in a system of interest whether it be organelle, cell, tissue, organ, or species. The proteome is made of all the proteoforms arising from gene mutations and polymorphisms, RNA processing, and posttranslational modifications (PTMs) such as acetylation, methylation, phosphorylation, glycosylation, and protein degradation, which are not encoded in the genome. The ability to characterize these proteoforms is essential for a thorough understanding of the biological mechanisms involved in the studied system. Proteomics, the science of analyzing proteomes, always involves protein recovery, separation, and mass spectrometry (MS) for quantitation and identification purposes. Consequently, progress in proteomics is tightly linked with technical advances in sample preparation, chromatography, electrophoresis, and MS. A key aspect of proteomics success relies on the correct identification of all the proteoforms observed in a sample in a high throughput manner. This topic covers innovations and technical progresses in these areas and welcomes original research, technical notes, methods papers, and reviews.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.ynsqex.icu by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Proteomes is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
