The Journal of Proteome Research will publish its seventh annual Special Issue dedicated to highlight progress on the HUPO Human Proteome Project (HPP). The Special Issue considers papers encompassing both the Chromosome-Centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP) and the Biology and Disease Human Proteome Project (B/D-HPP). In addition, we will now consider 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 2.1 or later when available, and be put in the context of both the HPP and biological setting in which they were discovered. We anticipate this format will encourage many teams, particularly of the B/D-HPP, to highlight such protein discoveries in a disease and biological context.

Manuscripts must be submitted by 31st May, 2019 to be considered for this Special Issue. Manuscripts must be submitted electronically through the ACS Paragon Plus Environment online submission system. Specify in the authors’ cover letter that the manuscript is intended for the HPP Special Issue.
Review and Publication Process
Initial editorial review will determine whether manuscripts are appropriate for the HPP Special Issue and fulfill the HPP checklist
) to be considered for publication. The completed checklist must be included with the cover letter. The full MS data submission to ProteomeXchange must also be completed prior to initial submission, and the PXD number provided in the abstract. Nonconforming papers will be returned unreviewed. All relevant papers will go through full peer review. As papers are accepted they will go online and be available in time for HUPO-2019. Due to the publication schedule, only papers that are accepted by September 31, 2019 will be published in the December 2019 HPP Special Issue. Papers requiring more time for revision or falling outside of the scope of the Special Issue will be published in regular issues of the Journal
HPP Data Guidelines
Papers must conform to both the Journal of Proteome Research mass spectrometry guidelines and the HPP guidelines v 2.1 (see Deutsch et al. http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.jproteome.6b00392) in order to be sent to review and for acceptance. Please check for any changes to the HPP guidelines available online at http://www.thehpp.org/guidelines/ before submission. All papers must analyze their data using the Human PeptideAtlas release 2019-01 and neXtProt release 2019-02. Papers not doing so will be returned without review.
21st C-HPP symposium “Illuminating the Dark proteome” - Saint Malo, France, May 12-14, 2019
The central theme of the 21st C-HPP symposium is to discuss approaches and topics on “Illuminating the Dark proteome”, a colloquial term that includes missing proteins (PE2 – PE4), uncertain/dubious predicted proteins (PE5), uPE1 proteins, smORF (small proteins), and any proteins translated by long non-coding RNAs or uncharacterized transcripts including those arising from non-coding regions of DNA and/or novel alternative splicing. The symposium will also welcome speakers from the B/D-HPP to discuss the functionalization of the dark proteome.
Saint-Malo, historical home of great discoverers and corsairs, is a fortified city located on the north coast of Brittany. The symposium will take at the Hotel France & Chateaubriand, which is located inside the “stone vessel” (the nickname of the fortified city). Registration for the symposium can be done online using a registration form that must be sent directly to the hotel. We are pleased to announce that the deadline of abstract submission has been extended up to March 11. Please visit https://c-hpp.univ-rennes1.fr/ for more details.
For sure, the wonderful location and relaxing atmosphere of Saint-Malo will allow participants of the symposium to exchange fruitfully and informally. Yet, spring has arrived in the Corsair City…
