Blood, Brain & Metabolism - Human Protein Altas release

Launch of three new databases of The Human Protein Atlas program; Brain Altas, Blood Atlas and Metabolic Atlas.

Time: Thu 2019-09-05 16.00

Location: Gamma 2, SciLifeLab, KTH Campus Solna, Tomtebodavägen 23a

The Human Protein Atlas is a program based at SciLifeLab that started in 2003 with the aim to map of all the human proteins in cells, tissues and organs using integration of various omics technologies, including antibody – based imaging, mass spectrometry – based proteomics, transcriptomics and systems biology. All the data in the knowledge resource is open access to allow scientists both in academia and industry to freely access the data for exploration of the human proteome.

The current version consists of three separate parts, each focusing on a particular aspect of analysis of the human proteins; including the Tissue Atlas showing the distribution of the proteins across all major tissues and organs in the human body, the Cell Atlas showing the subcellular localization of proteins in single cells, and the Pathology Atlas showing the impact of protein levels for survival of patients with cancer.

On September 5, 2019, three new sections are added to the resource: a Blood Atlas showing the profiles of blood cells and proteins in the blood, a Brain Atlas showing the distribution of proteins in human, mouse and pig brain and the Metabolic Atlas showing the presence of metabolic pathways across human tissues.

The release event will feature presentations of data findings from the new atlases, opportunities to ask questions, and a celebration mingle.
