Why do we need PRIDE?

The PRIDE database is one of the main public repositories for proteomics data that have been generated by MS approaches. In addition, PRIDE is leading the ProteomeXchange consortium.

Various journals in the field strongly support, and some even mandate, deposition of MS-based proteomics data into a public proteomics repository such as PRIDE (or others from the ProteomeXchange consortium). This enables researchers to understand, and potentially reproduce, experiments described in a particular publication. It also allows you to reanalyse mass spectra data as protein sequence databases and search-engine toolkits improve.

In addition, PRIDE provides proteomics data to other data resources such as UniProt.
