Abstract: After the full genome sequence of model insects had been determinedapplication of proteomics in model insects was developed subsequently. Proteomics has mainly been applied in such model insects as Drosophila melanogasterBombyx moriAnopheles gambiae and Apis mellifera. As an effective and direct approach proteomics can also be widely applied in studying physiologytoxicology and chemical ecology of nonmodel insects.

Key words: Proteomics, model insects, non-model insects, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, biological mass spectrometry, bioinformatics
