Why do we need PRIDE?

The PRIDE database is the largest public repository for proteomics data that have been generated by MS approaches. Proteomics is an increasingly-prominent field.

Many scientific journals mandate deposition of MS-based proteomics data into a public proteomics repository such as PRIDE (or others from the ProteomeXchange consortium; Figure 4). This enables researchers to understand, assess and potentially reproduce, experiments described in a particular publication. It also allows you to re-analyse mass spectra data as protein sequence databases and search-engine toolkits change and improve.

In addition, PRIDE provides proteomics data to other data EMBL-EBI added-value resources such as UniProt, Ensembl and Expression Atlas.
