The article presents the author's comments on the research conducted by S. A. Beausoleil and colleagues on improved computational techniques that facilitate for automated phosphorylation site assignment in large-scale proteomic experiments. Protein phosphorylation is arguably the most important post-translational modification as it plays the most decisive roles during cellular development. In his view, their methods promise to alleviate an important bottleneck in phosphoproteomics.
