Title: Data Standards in Proteomics: Promises and Challenges
Published: Date Unknown
Abstract: Rapid advances in the field of proteomics are yielding abundant data in many formats that, because of the vast quantity and complexity, are becoming increasingly difficult to analyze. A strategic objective of streamlining the transfer of knowledge and technology is to develop the means to analyze data from disparate formats to provide new inferences about the complex role of proteomics in disease processes. Data mining, a process of knowledge extraction from data or a process of exploring the available data for patterns and relationships, is increasingly needed for today s high throughput technologies. It is prudent to develop data architectures to support the integration and analysis of biological data files with epidemiologic profiles of human clinical responses. This ability to develop and analyze metadata will stimulate new research theories and streamline transfer of basic knowledge to clinical applications. This article outlines the ideas and concepts required to develop data standards for proteomics research, and it will serve as a unique reference for researchers, biologists, technologists, clinicians and other health professions alike, to learn about informatics issues relevant to proteome research designed for detecting molecular targets for disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment.
