Computer Analysis of 2-D Images

Indeed, the development of two-dimensional (2-D) electrophoresis technology has provided an important research tool for comparative proteomics. A number of other technologies for protein separation have also been investigated in the last few years, such as protein chips, liquid chromatography, and high-pressure liquid chromatography, to name just a few. However, 2-D gels are still considered the workhorse among research laboratories willing to accurately track changes in protein expression and to achieve differential proteomics.
