Have you ever wanted to do proteomics on fruit? How about dried fruit? Have you ever wondered how hard it is to get peptides out of a banana?
If you answered yes to any of these question, I have the paper for you! This paper in Electrophoresis is a complete evaluation of a number of different extraction techniques for obtaining peptides from different fruit. They start with bananas cause they are crazy hard and the method they settle on works for everything they try!
