A looming challenge in the proteomics field is finding specific, validated biomarkers for detection of disease state, particularly for early stage cancer. A new microarray technique developed by David Lubman at the University of Michigan has made it possible to perform large-scale analysis of glycoproteins, which may be early cancer biomarkers. The glyco-microarray, as he calls it, is similar to a protein array but instead has glycoproteins spotted down. Lubman presented data from initial samples at this year's US HUPO meeting, held in March in Bethesda, Md.
