Abstract

The Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI) aims to define community standards for data representation in proteomics and to facilitate data comparision, exchange and verification. To this end, a Level 1 Molecular Interaction XML data exchange format has been developed which has been accepted for publication and is freely available at the PSI website (http.//psidev.sf.net/). Several major protein interaction databases are already making data available in this format. A draft XML interchange format for mass spectrometry data has been written and is currently undergoing evaluation whilst work is ongoing to develop a proteomics data integration model, MIAPE.
