The 16th Annual World Congress of the Human Proteome Organisation was held in Dublin on 17-21st September 2017 with a vision to create a meeting that will bring together world leaders with a new generation of scientists to promote HUPO’s capabilities for advancing the knowledge of the Human Proteome and further impacting our understanding of health, disease and ageing. The congress was held in a state-of-the-art convention centre in the heart of Dublin a world renowned and historic city that’s vibrant, friendly and energetic.
This video showcases this superlative scientific programme that aimed at consolidating existing knowledge along with boosting our awareness of leading edge and forward looking advances in the field.

Proteomics has evolved from genomics and the successful sequencing and mapping of the genomes of a wide variety of organisms, including humans.
In 2017, eleven experts were interviewed in a series of videos titled Perspectives in Proteomics. The interview series was directed by Dr. Sanjeeva Srivastava and organized by volunteers of the Young Proteomics Investigators Club (YPIC), mentored by Mark Baker, Christopher Borchers and Stephen Pennington.

The Human Proteome Project (HPP), a HUPO initiative aims at identifying and characterising each of the human proteins predicted after analysis of the human genome, through concerted efforts of scientists and laboratories around the world.

The Human Proteome Project has two major goals: (1) Completion of protein parts list in a step-wise manner, and (2) Making proteomics an important component of biomedical and life science community alongside genomics. In order to achieve the set goals, the HPP initiatives have been broadly categorised into the Chromosome Centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP), Biology/ Disease Human Proteome Project (B/D-HPP) and Resource Pillars Human Proteome Project. The C-HPP focuses on understanding the human proteome at the chromosome level, while the B/D HPP aims at proteome level alterations accompanying the biology of different diseases. The Resource pillars human proteome project include the use of Antibodies, Mass spectrometry and bioinformatics tools like neXtProt and TPP to increase the confidence of the data for comparison, exchange and verification based on guidelines laid down by the Proteomics Standard Initiative (PSI). Completion of the Human proteome project will enhance understanding of human biology at the cellular level and lay a foundation for the development of diagnostic, prognostic, therapeutic and preventive medical applications.

The HUPO Congress has included a number of educational and promotional activities that together we hope will raise awareness of the achievements of proteomics and also support the training of young scientists wishing to pursue a career in the filed. This documentary on “Human Proteome Project (HPP)” produced by IIT Bombay team highlights the journey of HPP, its progress, achievements and key issues that lay ahead.
