The Proteomics Services Team, led by Henning Hermjakob, develops tools and resources for the representation, deposition, distribution and analysis of proteomics and systems biology data. The team follows an open-source, open-data approach and is a major contributor to community standards, in particular the Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI) of the international Human Proteome Organization (HUPO), and COMBINE systems biology standards.
As a result of long-term engagement with the community, journal editors and funding organisations, data deposition in standards-compliant data resources such as IntAct, PRIDE, and BioModels is becoming a strongly recommended part of the publishing process. This has resulted in a rapid increase in the data content of EMBL-EBI's proteomics resources. In addition, the curation teams ensure consistency and appropriate annotation of all data, whether from direct depositions or literature curation, to provide the community with high-quality reference datasets.
The team also contributes to the development of data integration technologies using protocols like Distributed Annotation System (DAS) and semantic web technologies, and providing stable identifiers for biomolecular entities through identifiers.org.
The Proteomics Services Team offers a range of projects for interested Master's students. Please send a covering letter and CV to hhe [at] ebi.ac.uk.
