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
