EMBL-EBI

By Adam Bonislawski
As scientists increasingly adopt proteomics as a research tool and mass spectrometers reach ever-faster acquisition rates, the amount of data being generated by the field is growing exponentially.

A Roche/NimbleGen official told In Sequence this week that the company is planning to launch SeqCap EZ Exome v3.0, a new version of its target-capture kit that will include an expanded target region covering more than 64 Mb of exons and miRNAs (see

The project's goal is to sequence the genomes of 5,000 insects and other arthropods to gain a better understanding of insect biology and better manage those that pose threats to human health, the food supply, and economic security.

The awards will focus on technologies that have shown proof of principle but need additional funds to demonstrate scalability and which could be ready for proteome-scale research projects within three to five years.

The European Bioinformatics Institute, Quretec, and at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich have all joined the consortium.

Later this year, the consortium plans to publish a description of the pilot data and the design of the full project in a peer-reviewed journal.

The European Nucleotide Archive consolidates the European Trace Archive, The Sequence Read Archive, and the Nucleotide Sequence Database into one EMBL resource.
