Dark proteomes: the dark matter of the protein universe
A recent CSIRO press release, "Secrets of the dark proteome", features work by Sean O'Donoghue, a data visualisation scientist with CSIRO and the Garvan Institute, and his collaborators on proteins. The naming of these dark proteins - ie proteins with completely unknown structure - was inspired by the analogy to dark matter. For details see the research paper "Unexpected features of the dark proteome".
