Welcome to the Centre for Proteome Research at The University of Liverpool. We are a well equipped lab, led by two academics, addressing a range of challenges in protein mass spectrometry and proteomics as applied to biology and biomedical sciences. The CPR is also a Shared Research Facility within the University’s Technology Directorate.

{NEW} CPR Datasets in PRIDE.
We are working hard to support open access and open data initiatives, and deposit raw data in [
PRIDE]. You can find our submitted datasets elsewhere on the ProteomeExchange site [HERE]. If you want to see why making data available is important, look [here] and [here], in that order.

Annual CPR ‘Year in review” posters
At the end of each year we produce a poster that captures our research outputs for the year, and also collates all of our main events, outreach, STEM activities etc. If you’d like to see these posters, then look for [EVENTS 2017] and [PUBS 2017] (PDF files). You can find our papers here (main menu, Papers) and pick up news information here.

Farewell CPR members!
It’s been a time for some fondly regarded members of the group to move on to better things. Dani returns to Brazil, Lynn takes a well-deserved retirement and Gemma starts a new job in Cambridge. Bon voyage all!

Compare the proteomes - simples!
Rob and Vicky have published a new paper in which, with Japanese colleagues from Ehime University, they show that it is possible to make QconCATS in cell-free systems, and more importantly, to make up to 150 in a single reaction! They call this new technique MEERCAT! [paper here]
