Meeting Report: The Fourth Annual PepTalk Meeting: The Human Proteome
Sean R. Gallagher.
The Fourth Annual PepTalk meeting organized by the Cambridge Healthtech Institute on proteomics was held in San Diego, California from January 10 to 13, 2005. The entire meeting had an interesting name: Proteomics in a Six- Pack, and consisted of six individual meetings that ran for two days each, in two groups of concurrent sessions: (1) Fourth Annual Protein Arrays: Complex Challenges - Creative Solutions (January 10-11); (2) Eighth Annual Protein Expression (January 10-11); (3) Inaugural Protein Folding Disorders (January 10-11); (4) Second Annual Protein Process Development: Optimizing Protein Expression Through Scale-Up (January 12-13); (5) Fifth Annual The Human Proteome: Plasma Proteomics (January 12-13); and (6) Inaugural Protein Therapeutics: Minimizing Problems - Maximizing Production, Progress, and Potential (January 12-13). This was indeed what the organizers called the “protein information week”. This report summarizes The Human Proteome meeting, which ended with a joint closing plenary session with the Protein Process Development and the Protein Therapeutics meetings.
