Om boka

Proteomics is a mature research tool in the life sciences, and it can be a powerful addition to the forensic science toolbox. This work presents several areas in which proteomics was used to answer forensic questions. Illustrating current applications of proteomic methods, this work introduces opportunities for proteomics to answer compelling questions in forensic science and biosecurity. These "case studies" will be valuable to both practicing forensic scientists
and researchers developing proteomics methods.

Om forfatteren

Eric D. Merkley earned a B.S. in biochemistry from Brigham Young University in 2003 and Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Washington in 2010. He completed post-doctoral studies in the well-known proteomics research group at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). In 2013, Dr. Merkley joined PNNL's Chemical and Biological Signature Sciences Group. Research interests include mass spectrometric analysis of biothreat agents and protein
toxins, strengthening proteomics bioinformatics strategies to ensure readiness for forensic and legal applications, and developing standards for forensic applications of proteomics.
