Approximately 11% of the human proteins are defined as missing proteins. These proteins lack experimental data on the protein level. In an investigation led by Sjöstedt et al, an integrated omics approach was applied to explore and identify missing proteins...Read more
Multiplex proteomics methods enable researchers to identify and characterize the antibodies produced in the human body. Characterization of the auto-antibody repertoire and changes in the targeted antigens in relation to diseased states can provide new venues to understand pathology of diseased states...Read more
The resources produced within the Human Protein Atlas are used by scientists to promote optimization of methods for production of active proteins and development of antibody therapeutics...Read more
Today, we are back in the Tissue Atlas facilities at the Rudbeck lab in Uppsala. Borbala Katona and Maria Aronsson are research engineers in the group working with microscopy and annotation of stained tissues, which we described last week.
Borbala Katona has a bachelors degree in biomedicine and a masters degree in infectious medicine and has been working within the Human Protein Atlas since 2014.
Maria Aronsson has a masters degree in medical biology from Linköping University and joined the Human Protein Atlas in 2012...Read more
Today, we start a "mini-series" about our Tissue Atlas here at the blog. Join us on a tour through the lab, meet some of the people working there, and see some really nice images produced by the scientists.
All the work on our Tissue Atlas is done at our Uppsala site, with Cecilia Lindskog as site director. You can learn all about her in one of our previous blog posts.
First we meet research engineer IngMarie Olsson who is group leader for the Tissue Microarray Production, Immunohistochemistry, and Scanning-group...Read more
