Human Protein Atlas supports biomarker interpretation

The Human Protein Atlas aims to explore the whole of the human proteome using antibody-based proteomics. According to a paper published in BMC Medicine, the researchers have created a freely available cell and tissue dictionary based on the atlas that could be used as a tool to support the interpretation of clinical tissue biomarkers. At the HUPO (Human Proteome Organization) 11th Annual World Congress, the Protein Atlas Project announced that it had reached its next milestone of 14,000 proteins on its way to completion of 20,000 proteins in total, Mathias Uhlén, managing director of SciLifeLab Stockholm, told FierceBiomarkers.
