NCI Using Tranche Network to Disseminate Mouse Proteomics Data

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Cancer Institute will release proteomic data from its Mouse Proteomic Technologies Initiative (MPTI) to the public on the file sharing network and data warehouse Tranche, the project announced this week.
 
The MPTI collects tissue and serum measurements from mouse models of different types of cancers using analytical techniques such as mass spectrometry. Tranche researchers, along with University of Michigan researcher Philip Andrews, deposited nearly 1 terabyte of MPTI raw data into the Tranche network, where it can be shared between participating researchers.
 
The dataset is now being released in publicly accessible formats as well and is available to others in the research community. Because of the encryption used on the site, data on Tranche can be privately used by labs with access to the information until it is ready to be released to the public.
