Proteomics Data Collection-3(rd) ProDaC Workshop April 22(nd) 2008, Toledo, Spain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The "Coordination Action" ProDaC (Proteomics Data Collection) - funded by the EU within the 6(th) framework programme - was created to support the dissemination, utilization and publication of proteomics data. Within this international consortium, standards are developed and maintained to support extensive data collection by the proteomics community. An important part of ProDaC are workshops organized on a regular basis (two per year) to allow discussions and communication between the ProDaC partners and to report on the progress of the project. The kick-off meeting took place in October 2006 in Long Beach, CA, USA. The 1(st) ProDaC workshop was held in Lyon, France (April 2007) and the 2(nd) in Seoul, Korea in October 2007. ProDaC organized the 3(rd) ProDaC workshop at the Beatriz Hotel, Toledo, on 22(nd) April, 2008, directly before the HUPO - PSI spring meeting (Human Proteome Organisation - Proteomics Standards Initiative). The work package coordinators presented talks about the progress achieved during the past six months. Additionally four external speakers presented their work on data conversion and data repositories. The concluding discussion session was chaired by the journal's representative.
