CSF-PR 2.0 -- Now with more cerebrospinal fluid PTMs!
The CSF-PR resource has been around for a couple of years, but needed a revamp since...you know...something like 90% of the proteomic data EVER generated has shown up in the last 4 years or so. (Do I have that pie chart on here? I LOVE that pie chart!)
For details on the updates check out this new one from MCP here!
There are some other databases out there on CSF. This one stands out cause of the following criteria:
Has to be LC-MS/MS from living humans
Has to contain at least 20 patients per study
The data from the study has to be publicly accessible AND in some way be open to quantification between 2 disease groups or between 1 disease group and 1 control group with an n greater than 3 in both groups.
Unsurprisingly, considering how relatively few people happily line up for CSF withdrawals, they whittle a relatively large number of published studies down to a much smaller set of super high quality (and medically interesting!) studies.
You can directly access this resource here!
