Proteomics is rapidly expanding with the advent of high throughput technologies and offers a greater understanding of the complexity of life and the process of evolution. Protein profile comparison between genetically heterogeneous individuals may provide important insights into physiological diversity and function. A new term, pan-proteomics, has also been introduced that permits the qualitative and quantitative comparison of proteomes of genetically heterogeneous organisms. Here in this chapter, various aspects of pan-proteomics along with its basic methodology and applications have been discussed.

Keywords: Bioinformatics, Comparative proteomics, Proteomics, Pan- Proteomics.
