Overview of Project

 

The model organism community is growing steadily and the number of comprehensive model organism proteome data being generated is continuously increasing. To standardize efforts and to make optimum use of the proteomics data acquired in model organisms, a new HUPO initiative in model organism proteomes (iMOP) was proposed and was approved by the HUPO Initiatives Committee at the HUPO 9th Annual World Congress in Sydney on 21 September, 2010.

iMOP will stimulate the scientific exchange within this community, and HUPO best practices and standards can be brought to the model organism researchers. Their needs towards the central databases will be better represented, catalyzing the integration of proteomics and organism-specific databases.
