IPRG Seeks Participants for 2011 Study to Evaluate Proteomics Computational Methods


The Proteome Informatics Research Group, under the auspices of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities, is inviting the scientific community to participate in a study that will evaluate data analysis methods used to identify peptide and protein fragments in electron transfer dissociation spectra.

Participants in the study are expected to use a variety of approaches to analyze an LC-MS/MS dataset from a yeast lysate digested with Lys-C and enriched for highly charged peptides using strong cation exchange fractionation.

Once they sign up, participants will receive detailed instructions and passwords to access the data in multiple formats, a reference Fasta formatted protein sequence database, a peptide mass spectral library, and a template for reporting their study results. Along with the results, participants are expected to submit a summary of their methods via a web-based questionnaire.

Requests to participate should be submitted via e-mail to [email protected] before Nov. 26 and results are due on Dec. 10
