Scientists working on the Chromosome-centric Human Proteome Project report steady progress in the effort to map all the proteins produced by genes on human chromosomes. Reports in the Journal of Proteome Research include the identification of 54 proteins on Chromosome 4 associated with cancer; a proteome map of Chromosome 8, which has a high mutation rate and could be related to tumor genesis; and new data integration and analysis software for researchers working on the project.
