Advances in bioconjugation and native protein modification are appearing at a blistering pace, making it increasingly time consuming for practitioners to identify the best chemical method to modify a specific amino acid residue in a complex setting. The purpose of this perspective is to provide an informative, graphically-rich manual highlighting significant advances in the field over the past decade. This guide will help triage candidate methods for peptide alteration, and will serve as a starting point for those seeking to solve longstanding challenges.
