Abstract: The standards papers that Nature Biotechnology hosted online as part of a community consultation (http://www. nature.com/nbt/consult/index.html), in particular those by the Human Proteome Organization Proteomics Standardization Initiative (HUPO-PSI) and the Functional Genomics Experiment (FuGE) working groups, represent an important first step toward permitting the sharing of high-quality, structured data. We particularly applaud the open consultation solicited by Nature Biotechnology and advocate the early-community-involvement approach taken by HUPO-PSI, FuGE and the other working groups in the development of such guidelines and standards. These are the most effective ways to ensure that the output generated is pragmatic and the standards are both useful and widely accepted by the community.
