Subgroup L: Using the Human Protein Atlas – Tips and Tricks

1:30 – 5:30 pm, Room 310

Organizer: Tove Alm, KTH Royal Institute of Technology

This practical workshop will give you knowledge on why and how to use the Human Protein Atlas database (www.proteinatlas.org).

The Human Protein Atlas portal is a publicly available database with millions of high-resolution images showing the spatial distribution of proteins in normal human tissues, cancer tissues, and different human cell lines. Antibody-based methods have been used together with transcriptomic analysis to explore the human proteome. The data are publicly available and include application-specific validations for each antibody.

During the workshop different areas of the Protein Atlas will be explored, with a focus on the new Cell Atlas launching Dec. 4, 2016. Practical questions will be handed out that are solved by hands-on use of the Human Protein Atlas.
