For the development of one of the methods of protein sequencing and using it to solve the sequence and structure of insulin, Frederick Sanger received the first of his two Nobel Prizes in Chemistry in 1958. He was to receive his second in 1980 for developing what became the most widely used method for sequencing DNA. The ability to indirectly deduce the sequence of a protein has come a long ways since the 1950s and 1960s, and these original methods are only rarely used today. The most common ways to sequence proteins now is to clone its corresponding cDNA or genomic sequence and deduce the amino acid sequence from the nucleotide sequence.

These columns generally are hydrophilic in nature. Most columns used in hydrophobic chromatography include a phenyl agarose matrix system. Common matrices include Phenyl-Sepharose and octyl-sepharose gels. Affinity chromatography Affinity chromatography is a method to specifically isolate a protein based on one of two methods. The most common form of affinity chromatography is an antibody based method in which antibodies that are specific for a particular protein are covalently coupled to a column matrix, often some form of Sepharose activated by an agent such as cyanogenbromide.

Common media for gel filtration columns include agarose-based beads, such as Sepharose and Superose, cellulose based beads, and composites (agarose and dextran = Superdex; dextran and acrylamide beads = Sephacryl). Ion exchange chromatography Ion exchange chromatography is a method used to isolate proteins based on their charge. Both anion exchange columns (positively charged columns that are used to isolate negatively charged proteins) and cation exchange columns (negatively charged columns to isolate positively charged molecules) are available.
