I just read interesting articles in Nature Biotechnology and ProteoMonitor discussing the possibility of adding a proteomics component to the ENCODE project (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements). They discuss the advantages (e.g. knowing if variants affect protein levels or function) and the disadvantages (e.g. proteomics may not be a mature enough technology for this integration).
