Proteomics is a branch of science that allows us to study a whole expressed protein pool from a cell or tissue. This has been helpful for many years in studying microbial makeup, but in animals, this field has not been explored much due to factors like the complexity and variation in genes of every cell depending upon their specialized function and tissue organization. However, in recent years many new techniques have been introduced in this area, which has added to the plethora of knowledge about animal proteins and has made it easy to understand the diseases and health-related aspects of livestock science. In this chapter, we will discuss the new advancements in animal proteomics to discover the protein pool from the different animal species of interest, branches of proteomics, and their role in livestock health and diseases.
