Professor Tim Griffin collaborated with MSI to develop and deploy tools to automate proteomics analysis tasks. The result was a set of tools incorporated into the Galaxy framework, and additional funding to expand his group’s work into related fields.
The first objective was to provide an integrated, community-based MS-proteomics workflow framework through development of Galaxy-P. The second objective was to incorporate tools into Galaxy-P that executed Windows-based software. The final objective was to catalyze Galaxy-P usage in the larger proteomics researcher community through educational and promotional activities.
How we worked with the researchers
MSI staff collaborated with the Griffin group from the proposal writing through the completion of the project. There was 1.5 FTE of effort dedicated to MSI throughout the 3-year project as well as funds for dedicated hardware. MSI staff had weekly meetings to update the progress, requirements, and research outcomes.
