Ernst Schering Prize 2012 for Proteome-Researcher Matthias Mann
Not genes but protein molecules, whose structures are laid down in the genetic material, are the real carriers of function in the cell. The analysis of proteins of organisms is therefore one of the most important tasks in biology and medicine. Matthias Mann’s research is making it possible to analyze the proteome with the same efficiency that was previously reserved for the genome (the total genetic material of an organism).
