To understand how proteins work in living organisms, more and more researchers are probing the complex interactions of huge ensembles of proteins as they act together in cells. Many studies involve all the proteins found in cells, tissues, or organisms, collections known as proteomes. The systematic study of those proteins—their structure, function, localization, and modifications, as well as how they change in response to different stimuli—is called proteomics.

An essential subset of the proteome is . . .
