Proteomics and Beyond A report on the 3rd Annual Spring Workshop of the HUPO-PSI 21–23 April 2006, San Francisco, CA, USA



The theme of the third annual Spring workshop of the HUPO-PSI was “proteomics and beyond” and its underlying goal was to reach beyond the boundaries of the proteomics community to interact with groups working on the similar issues of developing interchange standards and minimal reporting requirements. Significant developments in many of the HUPO-PSI XML interchange formats, minimal reporting requirements and accompanying controlled vocabularies were reported, with many of these now feeding into the broader efforts of the Functional Genomics Experiment (FuGE) data model and Functional Genomics Ontology (FuGO) ontologies.
