In this review, some of the limitations and issues related to current popular proteomic approaches will be discussed and a case will be made for the benefits of using one-dimensional electrophoresis-based proteomics for agricultural study setups. One-dimensional electrophoresis- based proteomics has an important advantage over conventional two-dimensional proteomic technologies because they are statistically robust and cost effective. The incorporation of greater numbers of samples can help alleviate the inherent variability of agricultural models that can adversely bias and influence the results.
