Recent advances in large-scale DNA sequencing expertise have made it attainable to series the whole genome of an organism. recognition is now turning to the research of the made from the genome, the proteome, that is the set of proteins being expressed by means of a mobile. Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis can be utilized to create mobile protein maps which offer a quantitative and qualitative photo of the proteome. Mass spectrometry is the strategy of selection for the quick large-scale idenfification of those proteomes and their transformations. An knowing of those equipment is necessary for scientists within the "Post-Genome" era.

As with the TSQ, a complete y-ion series is present, but here the full series of b ions is also seen. The internal fragment Asp-Asn-Ala produced by the quadrupole instrument is absent in the ion-trap spectrum. Both differences result from the way in which CID is performed. The two types of instrument both subject a precursor ion to multiple collisions with an inert gas, but products formed in a TSQ undergo further energetic collisions as they pass through the collision cell and can readily fragment if enough energy is supplied.
Means of using ion traps as mass spectrometers, and its invention made commercial ion-trap instrumentation possible (Stafford et al. 1984). A related means of mass analysis takes advantage of the fact that, at any given q value, an ion will oscillate within the trap at a defined frequency. If an additional RF voltage is applied between the end-cap electrodes at that same frequency, the ion will increase its amplitude of motion and, if the supplementary voltage is high enough, the ion will be ejected from the trap.
Second, the mass resolution obtained is a function of the operating line. If the slope is lowered, more ions covering a larger range of m/z pass through, increasing the signal detected but reducing the resolution (Watson 1997). The operation of ion-trap instruments is somewhat more complex, because several means of mass analysis can be employed; nevertheless, the stability diagram is instructive. These instruments generally operate with no DC potential applied, so ions fall along the qz axis from high m/z to low m/z.
