There’s no shortage of scientists delving into studies of post-translational modifications. A new technology called electron transfer dissociation, or ETD, has gotten plenty of attention -- but is it ready for prime time? GT spoke with experts in the field to get their views on the most efficient and effective ways to detect post-translational modifications (PTMs), as well as their take on ETD and other relevant technologies. Following are excerpts of conversations with the PTM pros.
