Peter Roepstorff is one of the pioneers in protein mass spectrometry and proteomics. His research group works on development of methodology for mass spectrometric protein analysis with focus on post translational modifications including protein oxidation as function of aging and also the use of mass spectrometric protein analysis in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry. Another research area is investigation of the global biodiversity through characterization of peptides and proteins from a number of different organisms for which no genome sequence is available. These include fluorescent proteins from marine organisms collected during the Danish Galathea 3 Expedition and bioactive peptides and proteins from e.g. frogs scorpions and snakes collected on different locations in the world.
