The aim of the ISPIDER project is to create a proteomics grid; that is, a technical platform that supports bioinformaticians in constructing, executing and evaluating in silico analyses of proteomics data. It will be constructed using a combination of generic e-science and Grid technologies, plus proteomics specific components and clients that embody knowledge of the proteomics domain and the available resources. In this paper, we describe some of our earlier results in prototyping specific examples of proteomics data integration, and draw from it lessons about the kinds of domain-specific components that will be required.
