Promise of Diversity and the HUPO Vision

The diversity concept is being widely applied and more and more often globally recognized – and HUPO is no exception. For a long time, HUPO has been committed to the principles of diversity, and this commitment is reflected in our membership and leadership. Welcoming differences, equal opportunity, diversity, and inclusion is not only a matter of civility, but a real benefit for any creative effort. Diversity has been long known as a biological force driving functional ecosystems, and genetic diversity in any population ensures biological success. Continue here...

Cold Cases: Applying Quantitative Proteomics to Resolve Rare Disease Diagnoses

Mitochondria are central to energy metabolism, producing the vast majority of cellular ATP via the oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system, while also being involved in other important processes such as one-carbon metabolism, calcium homeostasis, and Fe-S cluster biogenesis. Mitochondria are fascinating organelles as they possess their own circular DNA (mtDNA) which encodes 13 proteins translated via their own ribosomes (mitoribosome) while the remaining proteins are translated in the cytosol and imported into the mitochondria.

Early Career Researcher (ECR) Initiative
ECR Successfully Launches New Interactive Panel Series!

In partnership with the European Proteomics Association’s Young Proteomics Investigators Club (YPIC), the HUPO Early Career Researcher Initiative hosted its first online panel discussion on May 17th at 7PM EDT (GMT-4/New York Time). Our panelists, Dr. Yu-Ju Chen (Academia Sinica, Taiwan), Dr. Renã A. S. Robinson (Vanderbilt University, USA), and Dr. Robert Rivers (National Institutes of Health, USA), shared their insights on the importance of promotion of diversity in proteomics, which sparked lively conversations with attendees in the audience. Thank you to everyone who attended, our panelists, and our panel chair, Emily Hashimoto-Roth (University of Ottawa)! If you missed the live webinar you can view the recording here.

The July panel will cover managing expectations between a supervisor and oneself. Stay tuned for more details and registration information!
Event Spotlight
Proteomics Standards - Building Trust in Proteomics Reporting and Sharing for Almost Two Decades

The Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI) was formed as a HUPO working group back in 2002, with an aim to improve data sharing and standardisation in proteomics. At that time, proteomics was a rapidly developing technique, and the concept of sharing data in support of publications was still in its infancy. Most proteomics articles reported tables of protein identifications or quantitative values in PDF format, inhibiting their import into other software. Visualizing peptide-spectrum matches was rare, preventing critical assessment of PSM quality. Read on here...

Social Media Guide
Social media has become an invaluable tool, allowing organizations to easily stay connected to its members and attract new members. HUPO’s Social Media Guide, prepared by the Marketing and Outreach Committee, is a document intended to act as a reference tool for HUPO members creating promotional material and/or posting to the HUPO social media channels. In addition to helping standardize what gets posted, this guide also serves as a communications educational tool for individuals who, for example, are new to copyrighting. As HUPO’s online presence becomes stronger and its reach grows farther, its goal is to disseminate information effectively and respectfully about its activities to the global proteomics community.
