The Human Proteome Project (HPP) 8th Special Issue in the Journal of Proteome Research was published on December 4, 2020, with more 15 articles and one editorial addressing different issues related to the human proteome. This is issue is celebrating progress on establishing the existence at the protein level of 90% of the human protein coding genes. The Guest Editorial team comprising Drs. Young-Ki Paik, Gil Omenn, Lydie Lane, Eric Deutsch, Fernando Corrales, and Chris Overall (Associate Editor) were responsible for this 8th Special Issue. The whole issue is available at the Journal of Proteome Research website.
New neXtProt release with new human protein features
The neXtProt team is happy to announce release 2020-11-26 and that features updated protein-protein interaction data from IntAct and updated expression data from Bgee. Bgee is a database to retrieve and compare gene expression patterns in multiple animal species ,which is also developed at the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (Nucleic Acids Res. 2020 Oct 10:gkaa793. doi: 10.1093/nar/gkaa793).
For more information, please see: https://www.nextprot.org/news/new-release-with-updated-expression-and-interaction-data.
The next important release of neStProt with updated proteomics data is planned for February 2021 on which the C-HPP teams can measure their progress in completion of the human proteome.
Join us! Research teams for Chromosome 21 and 22!
C-HPP Consortium leadership is looking for partners to can join the C-HPP initiative to advance neXt-MP50 and neXt-CP50 projects by identifying missing proteins and identify function(s) to uPE1 proteins for chromosomes 21 and 22. Motivated PIs are encouraged to contact Chris Overall (Chair of C-HPP, email firstname.lastname@example.org) or other members of the C-HPP leadership.
We wish you and your family Happy New Year for 2021 and we hope that vaccination against SARS-CoV2 will allow our scientific community and others to meet each other again in person on international meetings, workshops and conferences.
