The human protein atlas shows expression and localization of proteins in a large variety of normal human tissues, cancer cells and cell lines with the aid of immunohistochemistry (IHC) images and immunofluorescence (IF) confocal microscopy images.

 

Software

 

Developed by Molecular Devices, MetaMorph is an industry standard image analysis suite and capture platform.
