Genome sequence projects in combination with advances in mass spectrometry and bioinformatics have created several new possibilities for comparative endocrinology. In 2001 we introduced the peptidomics technology that allows the identification of the complement of native (neuro)peptides in cells, tissues, organs and organisms. Especially when genome sequence information is available (D. melanogaster, A. mellifera, C. elegans…), neuropeptidomes were successfully id...
