1st Human Glyocproteomics Inititiave (HGI) Study
1st Human Glycoproteomics Initiative (HGI) Study was started in 2017 as an interlaboratory study to assess the performance of current glycoproteomics software for automated intact N- and O-glycopeptide identification from high resolution MS/MS spectral data across laboratories.
"Glycoproteomics holds immense potential to advance our understanding of the molecular and cellular processes underpinning human (patho)physiology, but remains an analytically challenging discipline (Thaysen-Andersen M et al., Mol Cell Proteomics. 15(6):1773. 2016). Accurate automated intact glycopeptide identification from high resolution tandem mass spectrometry data, a prerequisite for the further advancement of glycoproteomics, is still in its infancy despite many exciting glycoinformatics developments (Hu et al., Mass Spectrom Rev. 36(4):475. 2017).Formed in September 2016, the first community study of the B/D-HPP Human Glycoproteomics Initiative (HGI) sets out to provide a detailed comparison of the bioinformatics solutions currently in use for the site-specific determination of protein N- and O-linked glycosylation. For this purpose, two high resolution CID-, HCD- and EThcD-based LC-MS/MS glycopeptide datasets were acquired from a tryptic digest of serum glycoproteins by Thermo Scientific and these two common data files were distributed to all study participants. The participating teams were asked to return lists of confidently identified N- and O-glycopeptides from the two LC-MS/MS data files using preformed reporting templates and, further, to provide information of their used method of identification. The data is currently being compared and analysed prior to the publication of the study outcomes"
