Advances in urinary proteome analysis and applications in systems biology.

The urinary proteome is the focus of many studies due to the ease of urine collection and the relative proteome stability. Systems biology allows the combination of multiple omics studies, forming a link between proteomics, metabolomics, genomics and transcriptomics. In-depth data interpretation is achieved by bioinformatics analysis of -omics data sets. It is expected that the contribution of systems biology to the study of the urinary proteome will offer novel insights. The main focus of this review is on technical aspects of proteomics studies, available tools for systems biology analysis and the application of urinary proteomics in clinical studies and systems biology.
