ELIXIR Sweden

The Swedish ELIXIR Node contribute to the Human Protein Atlas, which contains:

  1. The Tissue Atlas
  2. The Cell Atlas
  3. The Pathology Atlas

The Human Protein Atlas is a Swedish-based program initiated in 2003 with the aim to map all the human proteins in cells, tissues and organs using integration of various omics technologies, including antibody-based imaging, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, transcriptomics and systems biology.

Efforts within the Swedish ELIXIR Node will focus on integration of the Human Protein Atlas with other ELIXIR resources. The Human Protein Atlas program has already contributed to several thousands of publications in the field of human biology and disease, and it has passed the selection criteria to become an ELIXIR Core Data Resource.

Other contributions from the Swedish node include involvement in the Compute, Interoperability, Human Data and Training platforms.

The Swedish ELIXIR Node is formed by NBIS (National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden).
