Depicting the protein composition of cells
Proteomaps show the quantitative composition of proteomes with a focus on protein function. They are built automatically from proteome data and based on the KEGG Pathways gene classification. Each protein is shown by a polygon and functionally related proteins are arranged in common regions. To emphasize highly expressed proteins, polygon areas represent protein abundances, weighted by protein size.
To open a proteomap, choose an organism and click on a proteomap symbol in the list. The line above the proteomap allows you to navigate between hierarchy levels. Hover the mouse pointer over a map to see the abundance values.
