About this Research Topic
Currently, mass spectrometry based proteomics technologies in combination with bioinformatics are being employed for identification of the all host proteins essential for infection, referred as host infectome. Hence proteomics data can provide deep insight into important aspects of the interaction between two organisms and its outcome. This new type technology–driven research stands in opposition to traditional hypothesis-driven research based on previously limited information. Using this approach the protein networks involved in the cell's innate defense mechanisms can be uncovered
