Thermo Fisher announced this week that it would be supplying up to 100,000 synthetic peptides to the Institute for Systems Biology to aid ISB's ongoing effort to map the human proteome.

The project, known as the Human Proteome MRMAtlas, will use the Thermo Fisher peptides in identifying at least four proteotypic peptides for each human protein, which will allow researchers to develop selected-reaction monitoring and multiple-reaction monitoring mass spectrometry assays for each of the roughly 25,000 human proteins.
