Here we analyze the protein distributions in terms of L and ID from proteomes of different organisms across the three domains of life, collective data sets of organelles (plasmids, chloroplasts, and mitochondria), and the proteome data of two giant DNA viruses (termed giruses in literature).
The primary technology used in proteomics is LC-MS/MS, which is used to resolve and collect fragment spectra of many thousands of peptides in a protease-digested proteome. To get a sense for the sheer volume of data generated by such experiments, imagine the data generated by a routine clinical LC-MS/MS method quantifying a single analyte and scale up by a factor of 100 000.
