Spatial demography—the spatial analysis of demographic processes—has long been used to derive insights from otherwise bewildering masses of data. Back in 1855, it was used by John Snow to identify the source of a cholera outbreak. More recently, it was taken up by the U.S. Census Bureau, which generates analyses indicating how government resources might be distributed across geographically defined administrative units. And now, spatial demography has come to proteomic research. The first analysis of how proteins are arranged in a cell has been completed. It promises to refine existing protein-protein interaction networks. In addition, it provides an important resource to deconvolute the highly complex architecture of the human cell. This analysis, an examination of the spatial distribution of the human proteome, appeared May 12 in the journal Science, in an article entitled, “A subcellular map of the human proteome.” It details the in situ localization of ...
