INPPO History
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). This initiative was first discussed with Dr. Wolfram Weckwerth in October 2009 at the Plant GEMS meeting (European Plant Genomics) in Portugal, and who showed great interest and enthusiasm in this initiative. Soon after the INPPO framework was presented in the COST Action Meeting (European Proteomics Society) held at Nitra, Slovakia on 15th and 16th October,2009, by both Dominique and Wolfram. More recently the initiative has been presented by Dominique during the annual meeting of the French "Green Proteome Network", led by Dr. Michel Zivy, and that gathers together a large majority (about 50) of the French laboratories involved in Plant Proteomics (http://pappso.inra.fr/). This was followed by the construction of a draft call paper, and the 12 co-authors joined minds together from across the globe, to finalize an INPPO ViewPoint paper now appearing in the Proteomics special first issue on plant proteomics in May 2011 (http://doi.wiley.com/10.1002 /pmic.v11.9). So, here we are, at the first phase of INPPO...

"Plant proteomics has been the poor cousin of biomedical proteomics for some time. Besides the perception of being less 'glamorous' than cancer or clinical proteomics it also faces the intrinsic challenge of being more complex and less amenable to data analysis due to the plant kingdom's greater genomic diversity and its lower coverage of deciphered genomic sequences" ...read more at http://onlinelibrary .wiley.com/doi/10.1002/pmic.201370104/full
  • Fascination of Plants Day
    On 18 May 2013,
    EPSO launches the second international "Fascination of Plants Day"! The goal is to get worldwide as many people as possible enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture, sustainable food production, environmental conservation, as well as for horticulture, forestry, and non-food products.To get involved, please contact coordinator Trine Hvoslef-Eide.
  • A NEW AND COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON SEED DEVELOPMENT
    A new book on Seed Development: OMICS Technologies toward Improvement of Seed Quality and Crop Yield / OMICS in Seed Biology by Ganesh K. Agrawal and Randeep Rakwal (Editors) has been published by SPRINGER at http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-94-007-4749-4/page/1 (The only book on plant seed development with application of the 21st century technologies - Provides a rich source of information including all references compiled in one place - Excellent reference and textbook for students, new researchers, and established scientists;http://www.springer.com/life+sciences/plant+sciences/book/978-94-007-4748-7 )

  • Polish Proteomics Society
    It is our pleasure to inform, that on 13th April 2012, the founding meeting of the first Polish Proteomics Society (PPS) was held in Poznan, Poland. We are also pleased to announce that both Polish country representatives of INPPO found their place in the society board. Dr. Robert Nawrot (Adam Mickiewicz University) was elected Secretary and Dr. Agnieszka Szuba (Institute of Dendrology, PAS) was chosen for a member of the Audit Committee. Further information will soon be available on the Society's website (ptp.ibch.poznan.pl).
  • INPPO reviewed in a recent publication
    Weckwerth W (2011) Green systems biology - From single genomes, proteomes and metabolomes to ecosystems research and biotechnology. J Proteomics 75: 284-305. (open access - http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1874391911003290).This article explains the foundations of Green Systems Biology and presents an iterative workflow to investigate the genotype-phenotype-map in plant ecology, evolution and biotechnology. International research networks, especially INPPO, are introduced and their importance is discussed. The socio-economic relevance of these research fields is further discussed.
  • We would appreciate any suggestions/ comments from the scientific community on any aspect of the INPPO website designing to further improve its visibility and/or contents. Thank you for your cooperation and support. Contact Abhijit Sarkar at contactinppo@gmail.com or Raj Agrawal at rajaanova@gmail.com.
  • A Special Issue on Plant Proteomics in the JOURNAL OF PROTEOMICS (JOP) [Volume 74, Issue 8, Pages 1161-1482 (12 August 2011) Plant Proteomics in Europe, Edited by Jenny Renaut, Birte Svensson, Jesus Jorrin-Novo, and Bart Panis] is now available at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/ 18743919/74/8. In October 2007, the COST action FA0603 "Plant Proteomics in Europe or EUPP" was launched and held in Munich. This special issue reports on much of the progress and reflects the current situation of plant proteomics at least in Europe.
  • As one of the INPPO initiatives to network with different scientific and non-scientific organizations, it is hearting to know that we have made a progress with MASCP (http://www.masc-proteomics.org/mascp/ index.php/Main_Page) as quoted "Represent Arabidopsis proteomics interests as representatives of the International Plant Proteomics Organization (INPPO) http://www.masc-proteomics.org/mascp/ index.php/Goals". INPPO will continue working in this direction to strengthen bonds with MASCP.
