Researchers' picks range from emerging tools like deep learning to fundamental issues like false discovery rates and infrastructure for mass spec data sharing.

Data privacy has been an issue in genomics for some time, but new regulations and improved technology could force proteomics to confront it, as well.

The project represents the UK portion of a broader initiative to sequence the genomes of all 1.5 million known animals, plants, protozoa, and fungi.

Using 350 human genomes from different populations, the two centers plan to develop a multi-genome reference sequence that is as complete as possible.

The institute — part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory — said it will use the new funding to increase its computing, storage, and building capacity.
