UW Proteomics Center Using Proxeon's Proteomics Data Platform

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The Proteomics Resource Center at the University of Washington will use Proxeon’s ProteinCenter protein data management platform, the company said today.
The UWPR, located in Seattle, conducts proteomics-based studies and it provides access to proteomics instruments and computational support to UWPR members and their collaborators, the company said.
ProteinCenter is an annotated protein sequence database that can be used for data-handling tasks including filtering, clustering, and statistical bioinformatic analysis.
Jimmy Eng, a proteomics software developer at the Institute for Systems Biology, said ProteinCenter complements the UWPR’s software tools, and it is used through a web-based user interface that is accessible “from any desktop with a web browser.”
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
