How to interpret PCA output statistically and biologically?

All that plots like this are telling you is that there are some genes that contribute more to the variability seen between your various samples than others. In an ideal world these genes will also be ...

How can I match sequences with IDs using python dictionaries?

Biopython can index a fastafile and you can access the sequences by their ID in a dict-like manner. All that is left for you to do is extract the IDs from your file. (more Biopython)

What unit is the length of a protein measured in?

As mentioned by others, it's the number of amino acids. Alternative measurements could be in Angstroms or similar, but that would require at least an approximate structure.

Why does a missing label 11plex TMT shows up at almost 50% intensity compared to other labels?

The developers answered along these lines: This might be a normalization artefact. Reporter is normalizing the ratios so that the median is 1. So, if the label is almost not present the noise gets ...
