Groningen and Chromosome 5
13 Dec 2012
The Chromosome Centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP) has the goal to detect and catalogue protein gene products and link them to their original chromosome location. C-HPP is organized teams for each chromosome with participation of world leading proteomics and bioinformatics laboratories. The Analytical Biochemistry group at University of Groningen headed by Rainer Bischoff was recently invited to join the C-HPP initiative taking responsibility for Chromosome 5. The Chromosome 5 team is further supported by Dirkje Postma’s (UMCG) group, which is internationally leader in COPD, asthma and lung cancer research, Manfred Wuhrer’s research group (LUMC, VU) which has extensive glycoproteomics expertise and the group of Henry Lam (HKUST, Hong Kong) with considerable bioinformatics expertise.
