ABRF's iPRG Extends Submission Deadline for Study

Premium

This story originally ran on Jan. 12.

The Proteome Informatics Research Group of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities said this week it is pushing back the deadline to submit results for this year's study to Jan. 18.

The study on LC-MS/MS data analysis focuses on evaluating participants' abilities to identify phosphopeptides and localize phosphorylation sites. Specifically, laboratories are asked to identify the phosphopeptides present in the sample with a false discovery rate of 1 percent or less; assess the certainty or ambiguity in localizing phosphorylation sites to particular amino acid residues; and complete a survey and attach a one to two page description of methods that were used.

The study survey can be completed here. Results should be submitted in the required Excel template to [email protected], naming the Excel file "iPRG2010sumbission####.xls," using the identifier given to each participant instead of ####.

Results from the study will be presented at ABRF's annual meeting in March.
