We are a consortium of UK scientists, led by the principal funders Wellcome and UKRI, working together to coordinate the sharing of protein reagents for COVID-19 research. The founding organisations are:
The COVID-19 Protein Portal is an Open Science initiative that enables UK scientists to share protein reagents relating to SARS-CoV-2. The aim is to accelerate COVID-19 research by providing high quality protein reagents directly to scientists.
Building on existing networks of laboratories with the expertise and capacity to generate recombinant proteins quickly and accurately, the COVID-19 Protein Production Consortium (CPPC) serves as a contact point and clearing house for new reagents.
Browse a growing reagent list to find viral proteins, human proteins and antibodies related to COVID-19. Each reagent is carefully annotated with key information including the sequence, origin, and SDS-PAGE results, where possible.
In the spirit of Open Science, the COVID-19 Protein Portal aims to provide reagents free of charge. In order to maximise the best use of resources, researchers are asked to provide a brief research proposal describing how the reagents will be used, to enable peer review and resource allocation. Following experimental work, researchers will be required to provide feedback to the CPPC on their results in order to share important outcomes with the scientific community.
