The TransProteomic Pipeline still exists!


Once, long long ago there was this open-ish cloud-like data processing pipeline with a name that would, for some reason, make you think of Santa Claus and hair metal. Not the good hair metal, but the stuff that they play on cellphone commercials and in elevators. 

It was called the Trans Proteomic Pipeline and I just learned it still exists thanks to this new paper! 

There are some really helpful tables inside the paper that tell you what data it takes and what it doesn't from the "dizzying" number of mass spec data formats that we have. 

Honestly, it looks pretty comprehensive. Since the TPP is hosted on someone else's computer, you don't necessarily need a ThreadRipper on your side of the internet to do really sophisticated data processing and manipulation. 

If you are interested in checking out this pipeline and don't know where to get started, check out this page of tutorials!
