German Brain Proteome Project Selects Bruker Software Platform

NEW YORK, May 20 (GenomeWeb News) - Bruker Daltonics revealed yesterday that the Human Brain Proteome Project, a division of the Human Proteome Organisation, had selected Bruker's ProteinScape as the HBPP's "standard proteomics workflow and database software suite," according to an official company statement.


The HBPP selected the platform at its April 2004 meeting in Paris. The organization will use ProteinScape to manage workflow and experimental data from several of its international sites. ProteinScape was co-developed by Bruker and Protagen of Dormund, Germany, and is distributed exclusively by Bruker.


HUPO is an international proteomics consortium comprising 10 countries from Europe, Asia, and North America. It recently established five international proteomics sub-projects, including HBPP.
