Identification of Microorganisms by Mass Spectrometry teaches readers to analyze microorganisms by mass spectrometry. Its scope ranges from chemotaxonomy (classification of organisms based on biochemical differences) to characterization of targeted proteins in applications that include basic biochemistry, medicine, and bioterrorism detection and prevention. It covers developments from about 1996, when MALDI (matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization ) experiments on whole cells were first reported, to the present. With all of the rapid developments in both microbiology and mass spectrometry over the last few years, this book fills a gap in teaching microbiologists and analytical chemists alike how to use the fundamentals of each others' fields.
