The whole basis of this work is to use proteomic analysis to investigate the causes of some diseases. As complicated as this sounds, this just means looking at the amino acid sequences of proteins that might have some association with a particular disease: we could just say that this is protein sequence analysis, trying to find some significance in the amino acid sequence by comparing with other amino acid sequences from other proteins. If you are interested in the ideas behind all of this then you will need to buy the book.
