Mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics have revolutionized biomedical research over the last two decades. High-resolution MS-based proteomics allows for the investigation of protein dynamics by measuring multiple features such as expression, secretion, turnover rate, subcellular localization, interaction, and post-translational modifications (PTMs). During the last 10 years, MS-based proteomics has progressed tremendously, due to massive improvements in sample preparation workflows, liquid chromatography (LC) and MS instrumentation, as well as sophisticated algorithms for protein quantification. Today, proteomics technology enables analysis of near-complete proteomes of mammalian organs, and the quantification of thousands of PTM sites. Although large-scale proteomics studies have advanced our understanding of numerous diseases, these studies often lack subsequent biological analysis describing underlying molecular mechanisms. Functional proteomics is an emerging research field that attempts to exploit a wealth of proteomics data to explain the biological functions of proteins, with the ultimate aim of dissecting cellular mechanisms at the molecular level.
This Special issue of Proteomes welcomes submissions of original research or review articles aiming at deciphering biological functions with the use of proteomics tools. Contributions will deal with the dynamics of proteins in their native and modified forms, with the combination of several “omics” approaches in contrasted physiological situations, as well as with technical advances in the proteomic field.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 1600 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.
