Abstract

The European Bioinformatics Community for Mass Spectrometry (EuBIC-MS; eubic-ms.org) was founded in 2014 to unite European computational mass spectrometry researchers and proteomics bioinformaticians working in academia and industry. EuBIC-MS maintains educational resources (proteomics-academy.org) and organises workshops at national and international conferences on proteomics and mass spectrometry. Furthermore, EuBIC-MS is actively involved in several community initiatives such as the Human Proteome Organization's Proteomics Standards Initiative (HUPO-PSI). Apart from these collaborations, EuBIC-MS has organised two Winter Schools and two Developers' Meetings that have contributed to the strengthening of the European mass spectrometry network and fostered international collaboration in this field, even beyond Europe. Moreover, EuBIC-MS is currently actively developing a community-driven standard dedicated to mass spectrometry data annotation (SDRF-Proteomics) that will facilitate data reuse and collaboration. This manuscript highlights what EuBIC-MS is, what it does, and what it already has achieved. A warm invitation is extended to new researchers at all career stages to join the EuBIC-MS community on its Slack channel (eubic.slack.com).
