HUPO President Throws Down the Gauntlet

SAN DIEGO, June 6 - Continuing to beat the Human Proteome Organization's drum, Sam Hanash, the group's president, challenged researchers to invent a technology within one year that will be able to identify and quantify 5,000 proteins in a tissue or cell type.


"Nobody at present time, no matter how much bragging, has reached the bar of 5,000," he said during a keynote speech at the Beyond Genome conference here. "People in proteomics believe that is reasonable, even though there are no papers describing [how to do it]. One year from now, we'll compare platforms and technology, and say 'Here is the winner technology, here is the loser."


Let the games begin.
