In an article in "Onkologi i Sverige" (Swedish) Prof. Fredrik Pontén has written an article on the history, background and development of the Human Protein Atlas project. General strategies and historic milestones are described as well as an update of the current status of the three main parts of the current version of the Human Protein Atlas; the Normal Tissue Atlas, the Cell Atlas and the recent Pathology Atlas.

For more than 20 years, scientists have characterised the behaviour of cells in different circumstances by analysing the expression of their genes. This is typically done at the level of gene transcripts, and their collective expression (the 'expression profile') is known as the transcriptome. These methods are very powerful, but generate massive amounts of data (mammalian cells typically express some 20,000 gene transcripts). What is needed is a method that provides a simple summary of such data. A team from Manchester, together with colleagues from Sweden, has now come up with one...Read more
PepTalk: The Protein Science Week is one of the largest annual gatherings of protein science researchers in the world. PepTalk attracts nearly 1,300 experts from academia, biotech and pharma who come together for one week of intensive learning and networking to discover new opportunities, apply alternative solutions, and develop promising partnerships. This event covers a wide spectrum of applied protein sciences with emphasis on upstream R&D engineering to downstream biologics production...Read more
Research-used antibodies continue to be important tools for detection, analysis and characterization of proteins. As reagents, and used in combination with technological platforms, antibodies enable researchers to explore the human body and understand how building-blocks like proteins are produced, distributed and diminished, as well as monitor alteration in time, space and during disease development...Read more
The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) jointly organize the first international conference on cell biology of brain. The ASCB/EMBO meeting takes place in Philadelphia on the 2-4 of December 2017. The conference brings together a program covering presentations from molecular structure and function analysis to signalling pathways, immunity and cellular interplay in organoids...Read more
