A new Blood Atlas - a resource for exploration of blood cells and proteins - has been launched, as part of the open access Human Protein Atlas, in which the proteins in human blood cell types are described together with a comprehensive analysis of all proteins predicted to be secreted from human cells ("the secretome"). The new atlas provides a unique resource for the study of human biology and diseases, in particular for immune-based research and efforts to develop new, effective treatments in oncology and autoimmune diseases...Read more
A new Metabolic Atlas has been launched as part of the open access Human Protein Atlas program, allowing researchers to explore the expression of biochemical pathways across human tissues. The new resource leverages the most extensive mapping of human metabolism to date, with biochemical information and connectivity for more than 13,000 reactions, 4,000 unique compounds, and 3,500 genes...Read more
A new Brain Atlas is launched showing for the first time an integrated view of the proteins located to the different regions of the human, mouse and pig brain. The regional expression in these three mammalian brains have been profiled and the analysis includes 1,710 human brain samples, 119 pig brain samples and 67 mouse brain samples. The new database provides many insights of biological relevance for the human brain biology and disease...Read more
A podcast from Science hosted by the editor Sean Sanders was published on August 1st on the topic of antibody validation and the use of gene editing for genetic validation of research antibodies. The podcast from Science Custom Solutions! is part of a three-part series called "Changing bioscience research using CRISPR-edited cell models" in which bioscientists across a range of research fields are discussing how they are applying and adapting the latest technologies – in particular the most recent advances in CRISPR-based gene editing – to their area of study.
The first of the three interviewees is Dr...Read more
Welcome back from holidays! Spending some weeks on an island is a pleasant way to relax and maybe it is a good feeling as well for induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), because they like to grow in clusters of cells mimicking "islands"...Read more
