Large scale proteomics studies have been completed for rice (Oryza sativa), Arabidopsis thaliana, Madicago tranculata and Nicotiana tobaccum. There is a need to direct these studies to other plants of economic importance also. Recent developments in the methodologies of proteomics are 2-D Gel Electrophoresis for the separation of a large number of complex proteins, Mass Spectrometry for structural determination of proteins, development of protein reference maps and the use of protein microarrays. The use of tools of bioinformatics and the study of protein-protein interactions will become the future direction in Proteomics. This review discusses the current state of the art technologies being used in Plant Proteomics.
