Proteomics centre deploys data management system
The Technical Implementation and Coordination Core (TICC) of the John Hopkins NHLBI Proteomics Center has deployed Proteus, from Genologics, as its lab and scientific data management system.
The mission of the Johns Hopkins NHLBI Proteomics Center is to apply state-of-the-art methods and develop new approaches to investigate the proteomics of adaptation to ischemia and hypoxia, a biological process of general relevance to heart, lung and blood diseases. The biological research goals of the centre drive the creation of technical innovations to improve methods for tracking dynamic protein or post-translational changes in disease, develop improved instrumentation and methods for taking advantage of novel capabilities and for computational analysis and dynamic modeling of subproteomes.
'Implementing a data management solution is critical to achieving our research goals and technical innovations at the Proteomics Center,' said Dr Robert Cole, director of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics Facility. 'We decided to work with GenoLogics to deploy our solution for a number of reasons. The most important of which is their solution’s flexibility to integrate multiple and diverse platforms such as the Thermo LTQ and ABI QSTAR mass spectrometers, 2D DIGE images and Mascot and Scaffold Batch data analysis software. Their ability to add new technologies as the core grows is another reason.'
