Combining genetic and cell-type-specific proteomic datasets can lead to new biological insights and therapeutic hypotheses, but a technical and statistical framework for such analyses is lacking. Here, we present an open-source computational tool called Genoppi that enables robust, standardized, and intuitive integration of quantitative proteomic results with genetic data. We used Genoppi to analyze sixteen cell-type-specific protein interaction datasets of four proteins (TDP-43, MDM2, PTEN, and BCL2) involved in cancer and neurological disease. Through systematic quality control of the data and integration with published protein interactions, we show a general pattern of both cell-type-independent and cell-type-specific interactions across three cancer and one human iPSC-derived neuronal type. Furthermore, through the integration of proteomic and genetic datasets in Genoppi, our results suggest that the neuron-specific interactions of these proteins are mediating their genetic involvement in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases. Importantly, our analyses indicate that human iPSC-derived neurons are a relevant model system for studying the involvement of TDP-43 and BCL2 in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ### Competing Interest Statement The authors have declared no competing interest.
