Sequencing genomes is a breeze compared with proteomics, identifying and describing the welter of proteins that a cell, tissue, or organism harbors. PRoteomics IDEntifications database (PRIDE), a new site hosted by the European Bioinformatics Institute, helps proteomics researchers by serving as a central storehouse for experimental results. So far, the site holds data from more than 1600 studies, including fresh findings from the Human Proteome Organization's survey of the proteins in human plasma and in platelets (Science, 21 November 2003, p. 1316). Search the clearinghouse by species and tissue to find out which proteins and peptides each study nabbed. You can also deposit your findings in the database, which accepts results from liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry and gels.
