The Human Protein Atlas

 

Explore millions of high-resolution images showing the spatial distribution of proteins in 44 different normal human tissues and 20 different cancer types, as well as 46 different human cell lines.

http://www.proteinatlas.org/

The Human Protein Atlas project was initiated in 2003 by funding from the The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. Primarily based in Sweden, the HPA-project involves the joint efforts of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Uppsala University, Uppsala Akademiska University Hospital and more recently also the Science for Life Laboratory based in both Uppsala and Stockholm. International nodes of the project are based in Mumbai, India and other formal collaborations are with groups in South Korea, Japan, China, Germany, France, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Denmark, Finland, The Netherlands, Spain and Italy.

Signals and Cellular Responses

 

Cell signals travel through the body, coming in contact with many cell types. In this interactive module, you will learn how the response depends on the type of cell the signal reaches.

Reviving the Rain Forests of the Sea

 

“Coral reefs cover only about 0.1% of the world’s oceans, but 50% of the species that live in the ocean live on a coral reef at some point in their life.” This quote is from this 26-minute video documentary focusing on protecting the coral reefs near the island of Curacao in the Caribbean. This is the fifth film in an award-winning series of Pace University student documentaries on environmental themes.
