Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) researchers from the Nesvizhskii Lab at the University of Michigan have developed an extension of its MSFragger flagship software to identify N- and O-linked glycopeptides.

NCI’s Office of Cancer Clinical Proteomics Research is recruiting a program officer to manage and oversee contracts that support proteomics data management activities. Responsibilities will also include overseeing both OCCPR’s Proteomics Data Coordinating Center and NCI’s Proteomic Data Commons—a repository of the Cancer Research Data Commons. Applications are due by Wednesday, January 27, 2021.

NCI’s Proteomic Data Commons (PDC) has released new data from the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) and supplemental data from the Children’s Brain Tumor Network (CBTN). This release contains 350 gigabytes of open-access proteomic data, including breast, ovarian, and pediatric brain cancer studies.

The NCI's Cancer Research Data Commons' Proteomic Data Commons (PDC) has new data from the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium’s lung squamous cell carcinoma and uterine corpus endometrial carcinoma studies.

Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) researchers shared the results of their first crowd-sourced NCI-CPTAC DREAM Proteogenomic Challenge. In this community-based, collaborative contest, participants developed computational algorithms to predict protein abundance and phosphoprotein levels.

The NCI Proteomic Data Commons (PDC) has new data from the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) and the International Cancer Proteogenome Consortium (ICPC) - Taiwan Lung Adenocarcinoma (LUAD) studies. This release contains open-access proteomic data for 213 lung cancer cases.

NCI's Office of Cancer Clinical Proteomics Research (OCCPR) released two new videos on post-translational modifications and bioinformatics as part of the "Principles of Proteomics" Series.
