Before joining the faculty of UCL and Birkbeck, he was the Roy and Diana Vagelos Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at the Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis (USA). The rapidly evolving ?eld of protein science has now come to realize the ubiquity and importance of protein-protein interactions. It had been known for some time that proteins may interact with each other to form functional complexes, but it was thought to be the property of only a handful of key proteins. However, with the advent of hi- throughput proteomics to monitor protein-protein interactions at an organism level, we can now safely state that protein-protein interactions are the norm and not the exception.

"While there are several books on Protemics on the market currently, Protemics and Protein-Protein Interactions is unique in that it focuses on technical issues and on the protein interactome itself. This very important and active research area is brought together by some of the leaders in the field to present a coherent entry point into a field that appeals to many. This will be a valuable and long-lived volume. It will certainly make a timely addition to any library or book collection."
