We are responsible for the maintenance and further development of the PRIDE database of mass spectrometry-based proteomics data, and related tools and resources. We are leading the global ProteomeXchange Consortium, standardising public proteomics data submission and dissemination worldwide. Additionally, we heavily contribute to the activities of the Proteomics Standards Initiative. We also develop open data analysis pipelines for different proteomics approaches, with the aim of improving scientific reproducibility. Finally, we integrate proteomics data from PRIDE into other EMBL-EBI resources such as Expression Atlas, Ensembl and UniProt. Our goal is to help researchers to make the most of public proteomics data!
Services and standards
Our team develops open-source, stand-alone tools including PRIDE Inspector (for data visualisation and basic analysis) and the PX submission tool (for performing dataset submissions), as well as different software libraries for handling proteomics data in standard formats. In this context, we heavily contribute to the activities of the Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI). We have recently started to develop open proteomics data analysis pipelines in the cloud.
We are leading the ProteomeXchange Consortium of proteomics resources, which aims to standardise public data submission and dissemination for proteomics worldwide.
Finally, we integrate public proteomics data from PRIDE into other EMBL-EBI resources such as Expression Atlas, Ensembl and UniProt, using innovative approaches.
We offer a range of projects for interested Master's students. Please send your CV and covering letter to juan [at] ebi.ac.uk.
