Journal of Proteome Research Special Issue on the HPP: Submission Deadline is June 30, 2021
The Journal of Proteome Research will publish its ninth annual Special Issue dedicated to highlighting the progress made on the HUPO Human Proteome Project (HPP). Since 2013, these Special Issues have captured incredibly important discoveries in the field, publishing over 250 articles that have collectively received over 5,000 citations. The Special Issue considers research papers encompassing both the Chromosome-Centric Human Proteome Project
(C-HPP) and the Biology and Disease Human Proteome Project (B/D-HPP), as well from the Resource Pillars (Antibody, MS, Pathology, and Knowledgebase), and short definitive reports, submitted in the Letters format, on the discovery of a Missing Protein(s). To be considered, the missing protein(s) must meet the Guidelines v 3.0 and be cast in the context of the HPP and biological setting in which they were discovered. Read on here...

Instructors are leading experts, who have contributed numerous computational methods and software. The presentations are integrated to focus on analyses of several well-chosen datasets. Together we will take an in-depth look into case studies of design and analysis of mass spectrometry-based experiments. Find more event details here...
Now on WeChat
We are proud to announce that one of the first achievements of the HUPO Marketing & Outreach Committee has been the creation of the HUPO WeChat account. This action is designed to increase the reach and visibility of the HUPO brand, ensuring that our colleagues who read Chinese can access HUPO with convenience. This is also an action to extend the influence of HUPO towards multiple languages. We encourage proteomics scientists with a WeChat account to follow HUPO via this platform, where we will soon be sharing important developments and information from HUPO. This is an exciting time to be a part of the HUPO community!
