The Muscle Atlas

‘The Muscle Atlas’ contains over five thousands of muscle biopsy images from people of different ages as well as animals. It includes images that are both normal and pathologic (caused by morbidity or disease) with staining to enhance contrast in samples at a microscopic level. Up until now, much of the global data and knowledge on the differences between muscle types – both normal and pathological – has been restricted to a small subset of researchers and specialised physicians. All human cases have complete morphological and genetic characterization.

The Muscle Atlas was created for the “Association Institut de Myologie” acting on behalf of the Institute of Myology, a translational research centre dedicated to the muscle gathering researchers, engineers and doctors (Association Institut de Myologie, Sorbonne University, INSERM and AP-HP) in Paris.
