650 Cancer Cell Lines analyzed by targeted proteomics via arrays!
I'm going out the door stupid early this morning but don't want to forget to revisit this new paper in Cell when I get back!
It looks like a big group from MD Anderson (a place you could argue knows at least a little bit about cancer!) built some intelligent cancer protein arrays, screened an absolute ton of cancer cells -- and made all that data publicly available to the world through a friendly and powerful web interface.
It looks like around 250 - really good - targets were chosen that represent both important mutations -- and PTMs (!?!?!? can you do that via array? guess so!?!?!). I can't wait to check it out later!
