Welcome to

International Plant Proteomics Organization (INPPO)

Proteomics like any other technique is a global affair. Proteomers, however lack a suitable globally recognized platform along with user-friendly and centralized database, and lack of media coverage and dissemination of information in plant proteomics field. To address this situation, Drs. Randeep and Dominique talked together on October 22nd, 2008 at the occasion of a French-Japan Workshop on Plant Molecular Biology held in Tsukuba, Japan. This chance meeting and the sharing of views on this idea/topic led to the construction of a preliminary draft with Dr. Ganesh Kumar Agrawal via numerous online discussions through the end of October 2008 and mid-2009. Following our agreement, we named this initiative, 'International Plant Proteomics Organization' (abbreviated INPPO). Read More


  • Further intensify successful ongoing cooperation in the field of plant proteomics for both model and crop plants.
  • Promote the establishment of national plant proteomics organizations.
  • Develop an open partnership around the globe.
  • Bridge the gap between academy and industry.
  • Establish centralized databases at several locations (Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Australia) with their real time integration.
  • Organize workshops at national and international levels to train manpower and exchange information.
  • Integrate proteomics-related activities and disseminate them to partners through the INPPO website.
  • Bring proteomics to every laboratory working on plants around the globe.
  • Aim to outreach to the younger generation students at the school, college and university levels.
  • Help translate the proteomics knowledge into biology and vice versa.

President's Message

The Educational Committee has reached considerable success, with the organization of workshops dedicated to INPPO actions and development of plant proteomics in several international meetings and for the training of young scientists in proteomics in several Universities. Papers dedicated to INPPO actions (INPPO Highlights1) or resulting from the work of INPPO Members (Translational Plant Proteomics2) have been published, thus helping to raise awareness of the organization.

Best regards
