Researchers from Emma Lundberg and Mathias Uhl√©n‘s labs at the Science for Life Laboratory, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden created a subcellular map of the human proteome¬†and published this Cell Atlas in Science in 2017, as part of the Human Protein Atlas. This team undertook the Herculean task of using “immunofluorescence microscopy to map 12,003 human proteins at a single-cell level into 30 cellular compartments and substructures”, and then they developed an interactive website full of beautiful images to share their results with the world. I love that they include several membraneless organelles as subcellular localizations, including centrosomes, nuclear speckles, and nucleoli.
