Sharing of research data in public repositories has become best practice in academia. With the accumulation of massive data, network bandwidth and storage requirements are rapidly increasing. The ProteomeXchange (PX) consortium implements a mode of centralized metadata and distributed raw data management, which promotes effective data sharing. To facilitate open access of proteome data worldwide, we have developed the integrated proteome resource iProX ( as a public platform for collecting and sharing raw data, analysis results and metadata obtained from proteomics experiments. The iProX repository employs a web-based proteome data submission process and open sharing of mass spectrometry-based proteomics datasets. Also, it deploys extensive controlled vocabularies and ontologies to annotate proteomics datasets. Users can use a GUI to provide and access data through a fast Aspera-based transfer tool. iProX is a full member of the PX consortium; all released datasets are freely accessible to the public. iProX is based on a high availability architecture and has been deployed as part of the proteomics infrastructure of China, ensuring long-term and stable resource support. iProX will facilitate worldwide data analysis and sharing of proteomics experiments.
