This chapter describes the implementation of the new proteomics technologies to the study of the protein repertoires of developing oocytes. Proteomics is a new analytical field aimed at simultaneously characterizing entire protein repertoires of biological systems. Using proteomics, comprehensive lists of the protein constituents of cells and organisms can be established. Even more importantly for developmental biology, changes in the relative amounts of the proteins and in the patterns of their posttranslational modifications can be followed. Here we will
