Over the past two decades, we witnessed significant technological advances in Proteomics. Methodology and instrumentation have developed remarkably and proteomics has become a priority field of research in biology. Furthermore, analysis of the entire proteome of many organisms became possible due to complete genome sequencing. The advances in mass spectrometry instrumentation and bioinformatics tools have advanced quantitative proteomics techniques, resulting in important contributions to the biological knowledge of plants. In this chapter, we highlight the recent applications of proteomics in plants, in both model and non-model species. We then discuss the pros and cons of the major quantitative approaches implemented in plant studies. Next, we describe the most studied post-translational modifications (PTMs) in plant research, and lastly, we review the challenges of bioinformatics data analysis in the plant proteomics field.
