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
