Highlights:
• The matrisome is defined as the ensemble of 1000 + genes encoding ECM and ECM-associated proteins.

• Bioinformatic and experimental approaches to study the ECM/matrisome are discussed.

• We introduce a novel website and database MatrisomeDB to centralize resources on the matrisome.

• We present a draft of an ECM atlas compiling proteomics data on the ECM of 14 different tissues and tumors.

• “Omics” data provide novel insights into ECM functions in development, homeostasis and disease.
