The Human Protein Atlas, a major multinational research project supported by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, includes proteome analysis based on more than 25 000 antibodies targeting more than 17 000 unique proteins, combined with transcriptome analysis covering all 20 000 human protein coding genes. In the new version it is now possible to do comparisons of primary data from several sources, including external efforts.

About the Human Protein Atlas project

The Human Protein Atlas project, funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, has been set up to allow for a systematic exploration of the human proteome using antibody-based proteomics. This is accomplished by combining high-throughput generation of affinity-purified antibodies with protein profiling in a multitude of tissues and cells assembled in tissue microarrays. Confocal microscopy analysis using human cell lines is performed for more detailed protein localization. The program hosts the Human Protein Atlas portal with expression profiles of human genes and proteins in a multitude of tissues and cells. The main sites are located at AlbaNova and SciLifeLab, KTH - Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, and the Rudbeck Laboratory, Uppsala University, Uppsala.
