Publish your Dataset (for free!) with the CTDP

As many of you know, earlier this year, we rolled out the ability to publish datasets with the Consortium for Top Down Proteomics (CTDP).  In a collaboration with the Indiana University "IU ScholarWorks" Repository, the CTDP is able to publish data for long-term storage.  If you are interested, please contact the CTDP Dataset Manager, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Once published, you will have a stable "Uniform Resource Identifier" to include with your journal publication and we will link to it from the Consortium's Datasets Page, http://topdownproteomics.org/data. An example of a published dataset can be found here: http://topdownproteomics.org/data/item/ultraviolet-photodissociation-for-characterization-of-whole-proteins-on-a-chromatographic-time-scale

Top-Down Proteomics Becomes Reality

Chemical and Engineering News Cover Story

Chemical and Engineering NewsIn the May 20, 2013 issue of C&E News (Volume 91, Issue 20), Senior Editor, Celia Henry Arnaud profiles the field of Top Down Proteomics in a cover story titled: "Top Down Proteomics Becomes Reality."


In the mid-1990s, as the Human Genome Project was in full swing, scientists started thinking about the protein complement of the genome, and proteomics—the identification and characterization of all of an organism’s proteins—was born. Early proteomics methods used enzymes to digest proteins into pieces that could be easily analyzed by mass spectrometry. Those methods are now mature and routinely detect peptides from thousands of proteins in a single run.

An all-encompassing term to describe protein complexity

on Wednesday, 27 February 2013.

Neil Kelleher and Lloyd Smith propose that the scientific community adopt the term ‘proteoform’ to refer to all the different forms that a protein can take. Will the community adopt it?

An all-encompassing term to describe protein complexity

In the March 2013 issue of Nature Methods, Neil Kelleher and Lloyd Smith, investigators within the Consortium for Top Down Protoemics, have proposed a new term for the myriad forms of proteins that can be found in nature.
