Human Proteinpedia—which yes, sounds like some sort of creepy, crawly creature—is a nice website that allows the sharing of human protein data and annotations. Site visitors can register for an account if they would like to contribute data, although an account is not necessary if one simply wishes to access data from the site. All data can be freely downloaded, and the individual datasets are annotated with a brief description (such as “brain proteome analysis”), the name of the journal where it was published (if it is already published), the experimental platform (such as mass spectrometry), and the name of the contributing principal investigator. Users can also query Human Proteinpedia for specific genes, tissue expression patterns, posttranslational modifications, subcellular localization, or experimental platform.
