The Human Protein Atlas at ASCB 2016

American Society for Cell Biology
annual conference, Dec 3-7 2016

The Human Protein Atlas will be at the annual American Society for Cell Biology conference in San Francisco. The whole Cell Atlas team will be there to discuss science with you!

BOOTH #718

Visit booth #718 in the exhibitor hall to meet the scientists behind the Cell Atlas and learn about our current and future work.

Special Interest Subgroup - Workshop

Subgroup L: Using the Human Protein Atlas - Tips and Tricks
Date: Saturday, December 3
Time: 1:30-5:30 pm
Venue: Room 310

This practical workshop will give you knowledge on why and how to use the Human Protein Atlas database.

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

Speaker line up and topics:

Tech Talk

Date: Sunday, December 4
Time: 2:00-2:45 pm

Launching the CELL ATLAS at this Tech Talk!

The subcellular distribution of over 12,000 human proteins has been localized to 30 organelles and cellular structures using an antibody-based approach and high-resolution confocal microscopy. The high spatial resolution allows identification of novel protein components of all major organelles as well as fine cellular structures such as the cytokinetic bridge, nuclear bodies, and rods and rings.
Prof. Mathias Uhlen and Ass. Prof. Emma Lundberg will present a high-resolution proteome map of the human cell, the Cell Atlas. It is an image-based atlas detailing the subcellular distribution of the human proteome, as part of the Human Protein Atlas. It also includes chapters describing the organelle proteomes, multi-localizing proteins, cell cycle dependent proteins, and cell line transcriptomes.
