A comprehensive comparison of large-scale tissue expression datasets

Mapping which proteins are present in each tissue is of great importance. However, with a variety of experimental techniques available to measure expression it has become important to be able to quantitatively compare seemingly disparate methods. In this study, researchers present a comprehensive evaluation of human tissue expression data aiming to alleviate this problem.
