The HUPO Proteomics Standards Initiative aims to develop community data standards for proteomics, that are developed, accepted and implemented by the proteomics community. To this end, The “AnalysisXML: exchange format for peptides and proteins identified from mass spectra” is now available for Public Comment on the PSI Web site.
The public comment period enables the wider community to provide feedback on a proposed standard before it is formally accepted, and thus is an important step in the standardisation process.
This message is to encourage you to contribute to the standards development activity by commenting on the material that is available online. We invite both positive and negative comments. If negative comments are being made, these could be on the relevance, clarity, correctness, appropriateness, etc, of the proposal as a whole or of specific parts of the proposal.
If you do not feel well placed to comment on this document, but know someone who may be, please consider forwarding this request. There is no requirement that people commenting should have had any prior contact with the PSI.
