Speaker: Mathias Uhlén, Science for Life Laboratory, Karolinska Institutet and Royal Institute of Technology
Host: Ingemar Ernberg


The Human Protein Atlas (HPA) is an international program with the aim to map of all the human proteins in cells, tissues and organs using integration of various omics technologies, including AI-based systems biology. The current version (www.proteinatlas.org) consists of six separate parts with more than 10 million bioimages each focusing on a particular aspect of the genome-wide analysis of the human proteins. All the data in the knowledge resource is open access to allow scientists both in academia and industry to freely access the data for exploration of the human proteome. The implications for the understanding of human biology in health and disease will be discussed with a focus on the development of pharmaceutical drugs based on data-driven life science.
