National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center

A clinical research, neuropathological research and collaborative research database that uses data collected from 29 NIA-funded Alzheimer's Disease Centers (ADCs). The database consists of several datasets, and searches may be done on the entire database or on individual datasets. Any researcher, whether affiliated with an ADC or not, may request a data file for analysis or aggregate data tables. Requested aggregate data tables are produced and returned as soon as the queue allows (usually within 1-3 days depending on the complexity).

PeptideAtlas: MassSpec

PeptideAtlas provides a multi-organism, publicly accessible compendium of peptides identified in a large set of tandem mass spectrometry proteomics experiments collected for human, mouse, yeast, and several other organisms.

  • Records: 76
License Information:
PeptideAtlas is a multi-organism, publicly accessible compendium of peptides identified in a large set of tandem mass spectrometry proteomics experiments. Mass spectrometer output files are collected for human, mouse, yeast, and several other organisms, and searched using the latest search engines and protein sequences. All results of sequence and spectral library searching are subsequently processed through the Trans Proteomic Pipeline to derive a probability of correct identification for all results in a uniform manner to insure a high quality database, along with false discovery rates at the whole atlas level. Results may be queried and browsed at the PeptideAtlas web site. The raw data, search results, and full builds can also be downloaded for other uses. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ FAQ: "How should I cite PeptideAtlas?" We thank you for citing PeptideAtlas in any publication that makes use of PeptideAtlas. You can find appropriate citations on our Publications page. FAQ: "What is public about your data?" The following sample record fields are made available if you you have specified minimum public access (private). 1: Institution, Contact, Date 7: Organism NCBI_TaxID (9606 for human) 11: Cell-type The spectra are not made available for the minimum public access (private) datasets. The following sample record fields are made available if you you have specified full public access. 1: Institution, Contact, Date 2: URL link to www resource 3: Literature PubMed ID 4: Experiment description 5: Treatment Description 6: Instrument type (LCQ, etc.) 7: Organism NCBI_TaxID (9606 for human) 8: Bio source description (eVOC) anatomical site 9: Developmental stage (eVOC) 10: Pathology (eVOC) 11: Cell-type 12: Date that we may make the raw data available to the public The spectra and data products are made available for the public access datasets. They are available at If you have other questions, please send email, ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ RAW DATA AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD It is our policy to make publicly available for download as much of the raw data we use to build the PeptideAtlas as possible. This includes datasets that have been previously published or otherwise released by the data producers. If you download and use these data in a published work, please cite the associated article (or data contributors if unpublished); an acknowledgement of the PeptideAtlas repository would also be appreciated. There are also many unpublished raw datasets used to build the PeptideAtlas, and these are not made available for download until publication or release by the producers. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ PeptideAtlas Publications If you make use of any data or results from the PeptideAtlas project in a publication, please cite one or more of our PeptideAtlas papers: General publications General purpose citation: Desiere, et al., "The PeptideAtlas Project", Nucleic Acids Research, 2006, 34, D655-D658 Latest publication: Farrah, et al., The State of the Human Proteome in 2012 as Viewed through PeptideAtlas", Journal of Proteome Research, 2013, 12 (1), pp162-171 Intitial publication: Desiere, et al., "Integration of Peptide Sequences Obtained by High-Throughput Mass Spectrometry with the Human Genome", Genome Biology 2004, 6:R9 Tutorial: Farrah, et al., Using the Human Plasma PeptideAtlas to Study Human Plasma Proteins , Serum/Plasma Proteomics, Methods in Molecular Biology, 2011 Publications regarding SRM SRMAtlas (whole proteome synthetic peptide SRM library) Initial publication (yeast): Picotti, et al., High-throughput generation of selected reaction-monitoring assays for proteins and proteomes , Nat.
