Over the past years novel technologies have emerged to enable the determination of the transeriptome and proteome of clinical samples. These data sets will prove to be of significant value to our elucidation of the mechanisms that govern pathophysiology and may provide biological markers for future guidance in person-alized medicine. However, an equally important goal is to define those proteins that participate in signaling pathways during the disease manifestation itself or those pathways that are made active during successful clinical treatment of the disease: the main challenge now is the generation of large-scale data sets that will allow us to define kinome profiles with predictive properties on the outcome-of-disease and to obtain insight into tissue-specific analysis of kinase activity. This review describes the current techniques available to gen-erate kinome profiles of clinical tissue samples and discusses the future strategies necessary to achieve new insights into disease mechanisms and treatment targets.
