iPRG 2013 -- Next gen sequencing + proteomics!
In my humble opinion, proteomics is just on the verge of going into full-out revolution. We keep hinting at it with the "dirty genomics" idea and a few studies here and there that have shown the potential of searching MS/MS spectra against "next-gen" sequencing data.
ABRF has jumped on this with iPRG 2013. In this study labs are being actively recruited to look into the real potential of searching MS/MS spectra vs RNA seq data. This is really exciting, as RNA seq technology can give you a picture of your transcriptome at an exact chronological point.
Among the potential of massively boosting your peptide spectral matches, the linking of these 2 technologies could give you the ability of looking at the proteome to see what is there and the RNA-seq to more easily see what is being expressed and when.
