EMBL Group, Flemish Institutes Launch Open-Source Proteomics Database

NEW YORK, Aug. 30 (GenomeWeb News) - A consortium of research institutes and universities in the UK and Belgium has launched the Proteomics Identifications Database, an open-source proteomics database, the groups said this week.

 

Members of the consortium include the European Bioinformatics Institute, part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, in Hinxton, UK; and Flanders Interuniversity Institute for Biotechnology and Ghent University, both in Belgium.

 

The database, called PRIDE for short, includes results of the Human Proteome Organization's Plasma Proteome Project, and a human platelet proteome set published by Ghent University.

 

The results of other international collaborations such as HUPO's Liver Proteome Project will follow after they are published, the consortium said.

 

The PRIDE database, source code, data, and support tools are freely available for web access or download, and can be found here.
