Getting Out the (Proteomics) Vote

Not to get all self-referential, but last month our sister publication ProteoMonitor had a story on a call by proteomics scientists to include more proteomics in the National Human Genome Research Institute's Encyclopedia of DNA Elements Consortium, or ENCODE, project.

The story was picked up by the website Shared Proteomics, which launched a poll asking its readers if proteomics should be a part of ENCODE.

Perhaps not surprisingly given the site's audience, the majority of voters thus far are in favor of adding proteomics to the project. Eight people have voted yea, versus one nay. There's also one indecisive soul who voted "not sure."
