The Human Protein Atlas is What every Medical, Human Biology Students and Scientist Need

I planned to write about this amazing project months ago, soon after I wrote about OpenSeadragon library. I recommended the project already to my colleagues who are teaching at medical schools. Some of my relatives who are studying medicine.

The Human Protein Atlas is a Swedish-based project that started 2003 to collect map, and publish histology, cell and pathology images. It aims to provide complete free access to researchers, scientists and of-course medical scientists for high-quality human protein images.

The Human Protein Atlas is a web-based medical atlas with rich sets of high resolution images which are classified in 6 atlases:

  1. Tissue Atlas: showing the distribution of the proteins across all major tissues and organs in the human body
  2. Cell Atlas: focuses on sub-cellular localization of proteins in single cells
  3. Pathology Atlas: showing the impact of protein levels for survival of patients with cancer
  4. Brain Atlas
  5. Blood Atlas
  6. Metabolic Atlas
  7. Protein Classes
  8. Protein Evidence
Eye: Tissue Atlas


It's an amazing project, here in this article I will explain why.
