Viewpoint: Yes, Governmental and Private Agencies Should Now Commit Themselves to a Human Proteome Project Because of the Many Practical Benefits Such Work Could Bring, from Improvements in Rational Drug Design to the Discovery of New Disease Markers and Therapeutic Targets.

The History of Proteomics

According to Dr. Norman Anderson, chief scientist at the Large Scale Biology Corp., what is now proteomics started in the 1960s as the first large-scale engineering project—the original Molecular Anatomy Program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. It was supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Atomic Energy Commission, and aimed to produce as complete an inventory of cells at the molecular level as technology would allow.
