The Metaproteomics Initiative promotes dissemination of metaproteomics fundamentals, advancements, and applications through collaborative networking in microbiome research. We aim to be the central information hub and open meeting place where newcomers and experts interact to communicate, standardize and accelerate experimental and bioinformatic methodologies in this field. This will be achieved initially through the website (, newsletters, presentations, online communication channel, collaborative projects, and symposia. More information can be found in our commentary article in Microbiome. 

Current lines of work:

Our activities can be summarized as follows:

  •  the organization of the International Metaproteomics Symposium (every 1 - 1.5 years)
  • organizing and supporting metaproteomics’ workshops, tutorials and lectures, both at conferences and online
  • organizing collaborative (benchmark) projects (CAMPI)
  • stimulating collaboration between metaproteomics researchers and closely related fields via an online platform
  • advancing standardization in the field.
