The Annual Spring workshop of the HUPO-PSI was this year held at the EMBL International Centre for Advanced Training (EICAT) in Heidelberg, Germany. Delegates briefly reviewed the successes of the group to date. These include the wide spread implementation of the molecular interaction data exchange formats, PSI-MI XML2.5 and MITAB, and also of mzML, the standard output format for mass spectrometer output data. These successes have resulted in enhanced accessibility to published data, for example the development of the PSICQUIC common query interface for interaction data and the development of databases such as PRIDE to act as public repositories for proteomics data and increased biosharing, through the development of consortia, for example IMEx and ProteomeXchange which will both share the burden of curating the increasing amounts of data being published and work together to make this more accessible to the bench scientist. Work then started over the three days of the workshop, with a focus on advancing the draft format for handling quantitative mass spectrometry data (mzQuantML) and further developing TraML, a standardized format for the exchange and transmission of transition lists for SRM experiments.
