Mapping Gene Expression in the CNS: Tools and Data from the Allen Institute for Brain Science

Abstract: 
The Allen Institute for Brain Science is a non-profit research organization dedicated to providing tools and data for the larger research community. Since 2003, the Allen Institute has created a suite of large-scale data efforts along with a web portal to view and analyze the data. These efforts include gene expression atlases of the developing and adult mouse brain and spinal cord, and developing and adult human and non-human primate gene expression studies. The presentation will cover an overview of the Allen Institute, its projects and infrastructure, a look at a few specific examples of gene expression.
