Date:9/29/2011

HELSINKI, Finland, September 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

MediSapiens Ltd, a Finnish bioinformatics company, has released the most comprehensive map of human gene expression yet for public use. The data is available through a graphical tool, Transcriptome Viewer, at the home page of MediSapiens Ltd, allowing exploration of the expression activity of genes across chromosomes in tens of healthy human tissues. Since the sequencing of the human genome, understanding which genes are expressed in which tissues and diseases has been recognized as a key step towards understanding the gene's functions. From a genetic point of view the expression activity of a gene is a fundamental requirement for its potential function to be fulfilled and therefore one crucial piece in the big puzzle of how human cells work in health and disease.
