EBI Bioinformatician Launches Personal Proteomics Project Tracking His Salivary Proteome Over Time

April 29, 2012

Last month Stanford University researcher Mike Snyder caused something of a stir by publishing in Cell initial results from an ongoing study tracking his “Personal Omics Profile” – a collection of data including Snyder’s genome sequence as well as multiple transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic, and autoantibody profiles taken over a period of 14 months (GWDN 3/15/2012).

Snyder, though, isn’t the only scientist serving as a subject in a personal ‘omics project.

Last July, Attila Csordas, a bioinformatician at the European Bioinformatics Institute’s Proteomics Identifications Database – PRIDE – launched what he has termed his Personal Proteome project, an effort to measure and track changes in his salivary proteome over time.
