A workshop on two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) protein database, organized by the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) of the International Council of Scientific Unions Task Group on Biological Macromolecules, was held at the CODATA Secretariat in Paris on March 9,1992. Eleven scientists from eight different countries represented various aspects of 2-DE analysis - namely, cellular protein database development and protein microsequencing methodologies. The purpose of the workshop was to explore means of integrating the rapidly expanding body of information on 2-DE resolved proteins from different laboratories. A major proposal emanating from the workshop was the establishment of an intermediary or ''relational'' 2-DE gel protein database. This intermediary database, which would catalogue pertinent information on 2-DE resolved proteins (experimental source, 2-DE loci, biological information, etc.) could be an adjunct to, and accessed through, the existing international protein sequence databanks. It would function as a pointer for researchers to the individual 2-DE protein databases where primary and more specialized 2-DE data would be housed.
