The Human Cell

Understanding how a particular DNA sequence gives rise to a particular protein provides us with some insight into that protein, but a deeper investigation of how the protein is made, where it is located, and how much of it is present in different cell types is required to enable a true understanding of its function. Proteomics researchers seek to identify and characterize each and every protein in a specific location—be it the whole body or a specific tissue. This poster aims to delve down an additional layer into the cellular proteome, taking a journey into the subcellular compartments within a single cell to discover what secrets each organellar proteome might hold. Characterizing the distribution of individual proteins at a subcellular level provides important clues to the pathways and processes in which these proteins are involved.
