Session 3

The complex cellular and molecular organization of the brain drives a variety of physiological and cognitive functions. In this course, we explore gene expression and protein distribution on the level of organ, brain region, and cell. We utilize data and resources from the human protein atlas project and other publicly available data sets to learn the advantages and limitations of different approaches, validate results, and utilize the available complementary data to link genes to cells and cellular processes involved in ‘normal’ physiology or disease.
