Proteomics, the study of proteins and the way they interact, is key to gaining a better understanding of the way cells function. Research into the different levels of protein interactions has caused a shift in proteomics thinking from treating all interactions equally to a making more subtle distinctions between interactions at different levels. This paradigm change is known as a transition from proteomics to complexomics. Joachim Kutzera focuses on protein interactions at three levels: binary interactions, stable complexes and larger, temporary assemblages of multiple complexes. Kutzera introduces a new computational method for finding protein complexes and detecting their interaction level.
