ready Human Protein Atlas


General Information
The Human Protein Atlas (HPA) portal is a publicly available database with millions of high-resolution images showing the spatial distribution of proteins in a number of different wild-type tissues, cancer types and human cell lines. The goal of the HPA is to map all the human proteins in cells, tissues and organs using an integration of various omics technologies, including antibody-based imaging, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, transcriptomics and systems biology. The HPA is composed of six parts: the Tissue Atlas, the Single Cell Type Atlas, the Pathology Atlas, the Blood Atlas, the Brain Atlas, and the Cell Atlas.
