TPP:Authors and Contributors
The Trans-Proteomic Pipeline (TPP) is a collaborative open-source project. It was originally started at the Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) in the Aebersold Lab. The project has since grown, with active contributors from institutions all over the world. The ISB continues to provide primary support for the project, with other primary collaborators and contributors at Insilicos LLC, the University of Washington, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center.
The listings are alphabetical by last name (with current affiliation, if known), followed by a short description of relevant major work

significant contributors and collaborators
- Ruedi Aebersold and the Aebersold Labs Seattle (ISB) and Zurich: support, testing, feedback; Ruedi Aebersold was the PI under whose lab the TPP was originally developed.
- Eric Deutsch (ISB): Testing and quality control in TPP; lead open standards development (PSI mzML), lead PeptideAtlas director
- Ted Holzman (Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center): MRM support in massWolf
- Lukas Reiter (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich): protein identification false discovery rates (Mayu)
- Chee-Hong Wong (Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center): data format conversion (mzWiff)
- PeptideAtlas project: testing, feedback; PeptideAtlas processes their library with the TPP and is thus one of the main drivers of the TPP project.
- ProteoWizard project: file format conversion. Included in TPP; TPP authors contribute back to main project.
- LabKey Software: Optimization, TPP testing
- X!Tandem: open-source MS/MS search engine. Included in TPP. TPP authors update and offer improvements to original code.
- Sergey Doronin: CProbID: c-language implementation of ProbID search engine
- Laurel Feltz (ISB): manager of the Seattle Proteome Center (SPC) grant from NHLBI which was the primary source of funding for the majority of the TPP work.
- Rune Schjellerup Philosof: special processing in massWolf
- and all of the many people from the newsgroup who have contributed patches, bug reports, testing, and feedback.
