Last week the Human Protein Atlas portal was updated with a new Pathology Atlas - an interactive atlas where the expression of specific genes and their influence on patient survival in the 17 major cancer types can be explored. The Pathology Atlas includes quantitative genome-wide transcriptomics data (RNA-seq) of the 17 cancers coupled with clinical outcome and spatial proteomics data (immunohistochemistry) of more than 15,000 proteins.

During the next weeks, we will highlight different cancer types included in the analysis and also show examples of genes with unfavourable and favourable prognostic significance. This week's news article features colorectal cancer...Read more
