Tandem mass spectrometry is the technique for characterizing a preteome. The detailed information yielded by the mass spectrometer is used to identify proteins from complex mixtures. The work employs analytical chemistry, and MS technology to increase the scope, sensitivity, and throughput for solving practical proteomics problems.
