RESEARCH CENTER FOR PROTEOME ANALYSIS(RCPA) was born in Shanghai Institutes for Biological
Sciences,Chinese Academy of Sciences,in the first year of
the new century.
In the postgenomic era, nobody will neglect
proteomic research, which concern all proteins expressed in
a cell or tissue. The mission of RCPA is to conduct research
on proteomes of different cells, tissues and microorganisms,
which are related to human health and diseases,and to
develop new techniques on proteomic analysis. The RCPA has
been equipped with the state-of-the-art instruments. The
RCPA consists of four labs: 2D-PAGE lab, MS lab,Protein
Analysis lab and Proteome Bioinformatics lab. The RCPA
disseminates the research information through its Integrated Proteomics Exploring Database.
