The Matrisome Project
The Matrisome Project is a collaborative effort between scientists from the Hynes Lab at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, aimed at defining bioinformatically and experimentally the ensemble of genes encoding the "matrisome", i.e. the ensemble of extracellular matrix and ECM-associated proteins (Naba et al, 2012).
The purpose of the Matrisome Project web page is to provide information and resources relevant to research on ECM proteins and to be a platform for deploying data collections, methods, and protocols. Our aim is to facilitate the use of our protocols by other scientists and to allow their widespread use in future studies.
