PRoteomics IDEntifications database
The PRIDE PRoteomics IDEntifications database is a centralized, standards compliant, public data repository that provides protein and peptide identifications together with supporting evidence.

The Global Proteome Machine Database
The Global Proteome Machine Database (gpmDB holds the minimum amount of information necessary for common bioinformatics-related tasks (such as sequence assignment validation) rather than being a complete record of a proteomics experiment. It was also created to aid in the process of validating peptide MS/MS spectra as well as protein coverage patterns. Most of the data is held in a set of XML files: the database serves as an index to those files, allowing for rapid lookups and reduced database storage requirements.

World-2DPAGE Repository
A public standards-compliant repository for gel-based proteomics data linked to protein identification published in the literature. The repository is continuously extended, putting together a large collection of multi-species reference maps, with thousands of identified spots..

The ProteomeXchange consortium has been set up to provide a single point of submission of MS proteomics data to the main existing proteomics repositories, and to encourage the data exchange between them for optimal data dissemination.
