This article describes the origins, working practices and various development projects of the HUman Proteome Organisation's Proteomics Standards Initiative (HUPO PSI), specifically, our work on reporting requirements, data exchange formats and controlled vocabulary terms. We also offer our view of the two functional genomics projects in which the PSI plays a role (FuGE and FuGO), discussing their impact on our process and laying out the benefits we see as accruing, both to the PSI and to biomedical science as a whole as a result of their widespread acceptance.
