Immunoproteomics is the study of large sets of proteins (proteomics) involved in the immune response.

Examples of common applications of immunoproteomics include:

An important aspect to proteomics in general is that mass spectrometry is the ultimate technique used for protein identification.

In addition to mass spectrometry, gel based, microarray based, and DNA based techniques, are also commonly used for identifying protein expression.[1]
