A public repository, standards compliant, for gel-based proteomics data published in the literature
It is becoming highly recommended, if not already mandatory, to provide public access to supporting data when submitting a paper
for publication in proteomics journals. It has already become a good practice for MS data.
The World-2DPAGE Repository
is put forward as the complement for gel-based data.
It should be emphasized that submitting data in this public repository will provide immediate benefits to authors.
First, it will guarantee long-term availability and increase visibility of their published data, not only through images and
protein lists in manuscript, but also as searchable data.
Second, this will contribute to the expansion of accessible proteomics data, making more experiments available for
further analysis or comparison (see examples through the World-2DPAGE Portal
