ABSTRACT: The advent of the Post-Human Genome Project Era, represented by the raising of proteomics, would inevitably lead to the change of molecular biology from topical view to holistic with its thought turning from linear to complex mode. Based on the proteomics development in recent years, the authors summarized the methodology of TCM syndromatologic research, advocated in using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) and bioinformatics to identify different proteins. Proteomics should be led into the research of TCM syndrome categorization and the rule of evolution, which is necessary for researching the integration of the TCM study with proteomics and even with modern molecular biology based on molecular epidemiology level. Owing to the gradually developed coherence and mutual penetration of proteomics and TCM on the thinking method in studying life science, it has denoted the necessity and importance of integration of TCM and Western medicine in investigating the complex vital life phenomena.
