The Human Proteome Project (HPP) MS-Pillar Phosphopeptide challenge (HPC) resource will present its first findings at the HUPO Congress Adelaide this month. The HPC continues to collect new data and invites new participants to also contribute to this knowledgebase. Participants are again invited to contribute to both phases of phosphopeptide identification methods development by analyzing a set of phosphopeptides by their favorite method and follow up with a method of affinity purification step using the popular ReSyn HUPO affinity kit to see improvements in their methods. Together with our partners, SynPeptide Co. Ltd in Shanghai (www.synpeptide.com) and Resyn Biosciences Pty Ltd in South Africa (www.resynbio.com), the HPP MS-Pillar will provide the SynPeptide-HUPO phosphopeptide mixtures as well as a comprehensive ReSyn phosphopeptide purification kit to use as the affinity method for the HUPO phosphopeptide mixtures. The SynPeptide phospho peptides and the Resyn MagReSyn® kit including the magnet separator are valued at over US$1000 each are provided free to all interested HUPO members. Come by the SynPeptide Booth at the Adelaide Congress to pick up your free set of HUPO phosphopeptide sets and request the ReSyn iMac kits.
