Mapping the human brain - a guide to the Brain Atlas

October 15, 2019

The Brain Atlas is a tool that brings the human brain mapping on a new level. It provides an overview of all the proteins expressed in the brains of three mammalian species: human, mouse and pig. It also compares the proteins in the brain to the proteins in other tissue types of the human body. Excited? Read more.

Interview with a scientist: Tissue Atlas - past, present and future challenges

September 03, 2019

Today we meet with Dr. Cecilia Lindskog, group leader at Uppsala University in Sweden, and the site director of the Tissue Atlas part of the Human Protein Atlas (HPA). Her research is focused on protein science, understanding the biology and functions of human proteins expressed in different organs, and the underlying mechanisms leading to cancer and other diseases. We asked her 10 questions about the past, the present, and the future of the Tissue Atlas.

Which cells or organelles are my proteins expressed in? An overview using the Cell Atlas

July 23, 2019

The human body is the results of trillion of cells communicating with each other. Early biologists described cells as simple membranous sacs containing fluid and a few floating particles. Today we know that cells are infinitely more complex than that. Read here about the Cell Atlas, part of the Human Protein Atlas, for insights into the spatio-temporal distribution of proteins within human cells.

3 steps to publishing a paper using the Tissue Atlas - a case study

June 11, 2019

In this blog, we would like to tell you about that time when researchers interested in a new therapeutic target for patients with type 2 diabetes, knocked at our door asking for help, and how we used the Tissue Atlas, part of the Human Protein Atlas project, to answer their questions. But let’s start from the beginning.

The Pathology Atlas - a discovery journey in cancer research

March 06, 2019

Humans are an intrepid race. For centuries, explorers have embarked on ambitious journeys of discovery toward distant horizons in search of new lands and unfriendly shores. They were pioneers with limited resources, and powerful ideals. Today a new generation of visionary scientists sail to new frontiers and discovery. They sail with knowledge, strategy, timing and multiple resources to reach a destination and achieve a goal, seeking to develop new cure for human diseases, consciously engaging in development and innovation. Come aboard with me for this crusade to fight human cancer.

Learn how to use the Human Protein Atlas: part I - three ways to navigate the Tissue Atlas

January 22, 2019

Have you ever been lost?  When you travel to a place that’s unknown to you, getting lost is easy, frustrating and discouraging – even frightening. And it’s always a waste of time.  What you need is a map. A map shows detailed information about the landscape, roads, points of interest and distances. But just looking at the map it is not enough. First of all, you need to choose the correct type of map, be able to understand its features to be able to read it, and most importantly you need to find your location on the map! What if I tell you that there is a map of all the proteins in the human body? Would you be able to read it? This article is here to help you on your way to discovering the potential of this great tool.

Which tissues are my proteins expressed in? A guide to the Human Protein Atlas

December 03, 2018

Sitting at the lab desk in the late hour of my day, I navigate the web scrolling pages and pages of content to find the information I need to plan my next experiment: which tissue is my protein expressed in? I click dozens and dozens of links that take me from one page to another. I am confused. I am not a focused cyber-sailor and I usually get lost very easily only to find myself pages away from my true destination. Which tissue is my protein expressed in? I still have no answer. Frustrated, but happy to read on how to cook the best pizza in the world, I give up. Sounds familiar? Yes, it has probably happened to you as well.
