What’s the answer? (proteomics repositories)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

This week’s highlighted question is….

What are the proteomics data repositories?

I’m updating 2-year old slides for a course that will introduce genomics and computational analysis to graduate students in nutrition. I have a segment on proteomics that begins with data repositories and that, at the moment, is limited to PRIDE at the EBI.

How useful is PRIDE? What other proteomics data sites should I include?

Thanks for your help!

This led to some good answers about various repositories and data sets that may be of interest, with links and references in the replies. But if you have other leads please bring them over to help Larry and future readers of the BioStar thread to educate his class about this topic.
