Dear P4EU members. Around six years ago I started to talk actively in the P4EU meetings regarding the necessity to implement QC guidelines in protein production. Yesterday was finally publish in Nature Communication:
de Marco, A., Berrow, N., Lebendiker, M. et al. Quality control of protein reagents for the improvement of research data reproducibility. Nat Commun 12, 2795 (2021). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-021-23167-z
The idea was not new. Ario de Marco started it a few years ago. Together with Ario and Tsafi Danieli, we wrote an article on this, and same year a group of Biophysics publish the same ideas. In the P4EU meeting organized by Barbara in Dresden (2015?), both groups decide to coordinate forces. We meet a few times. We work in our guidelines. We open it to discussion in our forums and they are a fact. I think that was possible to publish it around 3 to 4 years ago, but I was alone in this position. Nevertheless, we succeed to publish it.
Thanks to Ario DeMarco, Nick and Bertrand that wrote the letter for publication: excellent job. I am very proud for my contribution to the work, and very proud of my P4EU colleagues: Ario, Nick, Kim and Annabel Parret. And the most important, I am very proud that we push this project as one of the most important tasks of our wonderful P4EU group
But the project did not finish. We would like to see the guidelines accepted by the scientific world. Unfortunately for me, it’s published very close to my retirement at the end of September. So, I doubt that I would be able to continue the project (not sure what I’ll do from October…still planning. But for sure not in the University).
Congratulations for this incredible achievement
Ario, Nick, Kim Annabel and Mario

Congratulations! These guidelines are very useful. Thank you Mario for the link.
