The PRIDE database at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI, Cambridge, UK) was established as a public data repository to support the publication of MS related studies. Thus, PRIDE stores three different kinds of information: peptide and protein identifications derived from MS or MS/MS experiments, MS and MS/MS mass spectra as peak lists, and all associated metadata. Data in PRIDE is not reprocessed or altered in any way after submission, since PRIDE represents the submitter’s view of the data. PRIDE allows data to remain private while anonymously sharing it with journal editors and reviewers and it is now a recommended submission point for several journals such as Nature Biotechnology, Nature Methods and Proteomics.
