A Guide to the C-HPP Workshops in Vancouver

Cover page of III. C-HPP special issue in Journal of Proteome Research (September 2015, Volume 14, Number 9)

Introduction and Overview

  • In 2015, the C-HPP consortium has begun its vibrant scientific activities around the globe. In addition to several local meetings, many relevant scientific topics on C-HPP have been discussed: USHUPO, 3/13-16 in Boston; KHUPO, 3/26-27 in Seoul; Y Chromosome Workshop 5/7/2015, Tehran, Iran; 12th C-HPP Workshop, 6/23, Milano, Italy.
  • Peter Horvatovich, Secretary General of C-HPP Consortium, has made update on the wiki site where you can download some of slides presented in Milano workshop (see program at C-HPP Wiki).
  • To maintain the momentum on these local or regional C-HPP activities, we are preparing for very exciting scientific festivals on the C-HPP in Vancouver. During the annual 2015 HUPO congress in Vancouver, we have a full package of scientific agenda which will certainly move our project forward as a key part of HUPO HPP (see ‘Summary of C-HPP Activities’ below and in Appendices 1-7). Please mark these schedules on your calendar.
  • As we did last year, HPP leadership will also plan to host post-Congress HPP workshop (C-HPP + B/D-HPP + Resources Teams) to discuss all matters arising in the HPP research with deep and well-focused agenda (see Appendix 7). We are happy to inform you that there is already enthusiastic response to this post-congress meeting. We were told that the limited seat (~180) has almost been occupied by the registrants. However, we encourage you to visit the registration site here to check any seats available for you.
  • The following workshops are now under organization among other HPP programs. We will make you update on each plan in the next circular around the middle of August.
  • JPR Editorial Office (EIC, Bill Hancock) has initially received total 45 manuscripts for the C-HPP special issue. Due to some delays in review/revision process of some manuscripts, 25 accepted manuscripts will be published in JPR September issue and the remainder will be carried over in October issue. We appreciate all those editors involved in JPR SI publications.
    Editors for SI: Bill Hancock (EIC), Gil Omenn, Chris Overall, Eric Deutsch and Young-KI Paik.

HPP Bioinformatics Workshop

Date: Monday, Sept 28, 2015
Time: 13:15-14:15
Location: Room: 12
Orgnizer: Eric Deutsch

In this workshop, the current and future HPP data guidelines will be discussed. The goal of the workshop is to understand where the existing guidelines have served the HPP well and poorly, and discuss a proposed set of new guidelines, specifically in the context of advancing confident detections of missing proteins. Each subtopic will be introduced separately, followed by discussion by the workshop participants. Full audience participation is encouraged. The major subtopics include: current HPP data guidelines, data deposition in ProteomeXchange, the 1% protein-level FDR requirement, manual inspection of extraordinary claims, consideration of alternate explanations of the data, use of synthetic reference peptides, and the use of SRM to confirm shotgun results.

Presentation of Eric Deutch on "Enhancing Novel Claim Reporting Guidelines" is available in pdf here.

Appendix 5

Proposal for Restructuring C-HPP Teams to Stimulate Scientific Activity of Individual Teams and Cross-Chromosome Studies

(Draft ver. 2.0)

1. Aims

  • To stimulate activity of each team and work performance of chromosome-based proteomics research in a cooperative manner, resulting in more credible and reproducible results.
  • To improve efficiency and make a closer working relationship between chromosome teams and their resource pillar towards completion of the scientific goals.
  • To make a strong research focus of chromosome teams using the advanced proteomics platform technologies and resources, enabling secure research funding.

2. Why we need restructuring?

  • As the technology in proteomics research and large scale competitive publications came out recently, it was necessary for us to closely re-examine the direction of ongoing projects and C-HPP teams’ operation to ensure we continually are at upfront in the studies of Chromosome-based proteomics.
  • At the juncture of a half past in Phase I (2012.9-2018.9), the C-HPP leadership felt that some changes in our working structure and consortium operation are necessary as the strong demands on better corporation between teams are emerging, making necessary to develop a team approach to achieve our scientific goals.
  • It is also noticed that at present there exist some differences among the consortium teams with respect to research productivity (e.g., publications to JPR special issues, 2013-2015), efficiency of collaborations, level of secured funding and team management. Thus, to improve the current situation, leadership of C-HPP and HPP had an informal meeting in Milano, Italy (June 25, 2015) and they came up with an idea on restructuring the current C-HPP teams.
  • C-HPP leadership felt that the structural changes need to be done stepwise without disturbing overall organization. This new move will give us a golden opportunity to reshape the leadership (PI) of our individual chromosome teams, if necessary, and build new team networks to achieve our scientific goals.

3. Expected Outcomes

  • Restructuring our C-HPP associated teams with a strong focus on the project will bring streamline in the leadership of each team and logistical strategy on completing the project. It will also be a good chance in getting more efficient research works for clustered teams.
  • This new move will not only stimulate less active teams by giving them an opportunity to identify a new PI as well as additional working members but also make synergistic outputs by working together with other teams across chromosomes under the specific goals (e.g., missing protein validation, data integration, disease mechanism, biological studies using the same resources and technology platform).
  • Regarding more efficient collaboration within HPP group, since C-HPP has a strong technological aspect to improve detection of proteoforms (including missing proteins), we can enhance our collaboration with B/D-HPP teams. For instace, if we identify a missing protein or a proteoforms, we can provide the analytical method to study their functionalities. This should define the collaboration with B/D-HPP teams with addition that they can be a source of precious sample collection for the studies of biological/pathological implications of missing proteins, important for both teams.
  • With restructured team, more efforts will be put on metrics to unequivocally define those newly detected protein/proteoforms. Further to this, we can build a consensus on identification of cell types, tissues or biological conditions providing the highest probability of detecting a given protein/proteoform. This also brings improved methods and workflows allowing detection and quantification of missing proteins/proteoforms.

Proposed Action Items by Each Team

We want to suggest that each PI may use the following steps to implement successful changes to each team’s chromosome-based research: of course, they can have modified steps of the suggested one. The discussion topics also include PI change, recruitment of new members, identification of collaborative teams and sharing funds in addition to the given topics, ‘team clustering’ or ‘cross chromosome study group formation’.

Step 1: Each PI of chromosome team may consult his/her team members first and discuss what type of changes would enhance their current operation as well as collaboration to achieve their goals. If this step goes well, then they proceed to step 2.
Step 2: Each team will identify potential new members (e.g., PI, co-PIs, supportive groups, associate members etc.) and partner(s) and start contacting them by email or phone calls before the Vancouver Sunday (Sept 27) workshop. If necessary, they can seek some advice from the C-HPP co-chairs.
Step 3: C-HPP will hold a Break-out session from 11:30 to 13:30 at Room 18, Sunday, Sept 27, in Vancouver Convention Center. In this meeting, they can freely exchange their view on this proposal for their own team development and the potential benefits from this restructuring effort, and each PI reports the outcomes from this discussion to whole group at the meeting. More specifically, 13:30“Interaction with SSAB and Reports from Breakout Sessions (led by Mike Snyder). We also would like to encourage all teams to establish team’s long-term plans (2015.9-2018.9, Phase I and 2018.9-2022.9, Phase II) including the research funding.

Step 4: All decisions made at this meeting will be reported to C-HPP EC and also be ratified by PIC members at PIC meeting on Tuesday, 13:15-14:15, at Room 12. Although this will conclude the debate on the restructuring plan, we will continue to put our all efforts to improve our organizational operation to accomplish our scientific goals throughout the project period (till Sept 10, 2022).
