With the availability of genome information for more and more species and the advancement in mass spectrometry technologies, proteomics has come into true since 1990s. As the direct executors for physiological and biochemical reactions, proteins are undoubtedly important in biological system. Proteomics is the subject that focuses on protein entity. How could proteomics contribute in solving different plant biological problems, and how could we apply it in agriculture and plant biotechnology are major issues in plant proteomic studies. Proteomics technology has unraveled a great number of proteins which play crucial roles in plant growth/development and adaptation to environmental stresses. Functional analyses of those proteins will contribute to develop stress-resistant/tolerant crops and artificially regulated crops.
With a rising population, growing more food at affordable prices becomes even more important. On the other hand, he accelerated global warming influences the yield and quality of crop. This challenge requires integrated approaches to increase agricultural production and cope with environmental challenges. Proteomics can play specific roles in addressing the growing demand for food. The advent of proteomics has allowed researchers to identify a broad spectrum of proteins in living systems. This could help to find the functional important proteins or their modifications that could not be found through the studies at any other levels. This capability is especially useful for agriculture because it may give clues not only about nutritional value but also about traits such as yield and how these factors are affected by adverse environmental conditions.
