The Allen Mouse Brain Atlas is a genome-wide, high-resolution atlas of gene expression throughout the adult mouse brain. This tutorial describes the basic search and navigation features of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas.
The Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas is a detailed atlas of gene expression across mouse brain development. This tutorial describes the basic search and navigation features of the Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas.
This tutorial demonstrates how to use the differential search feature of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas to find gene markers for different regions of the brain, as well as to visualize this gene expression in three-dimensional space. Differential search is also available for the Allen Developing Mouse Brain Atlas and the Allen Human Brain Atlas.
The Mouse Phenome Database (MPD) provides access to primary experimental trait data, genotypic variation, protocols and analysis tools for mouse genetic studies. Data are contributed by investigators worldwide and represent a broad scope of phenotyping endpoints and disease-related traits in naïve mice and those exposed to drugs, environmental agents or other treatments. MPD ensures rigorous curation of phenotype data and supporting documentation using relevant ontologies and controlled vocabularies. As a repository of curated and integrated data, MPD provides a means to access/re-use baseline data, as well as allows users to identify sensitized backgrounds for making new mouse models with genome editing technologies, analyze trait co-inheritance, benchmark assays in their own laboratories, and many other research applications. MPD’s primary source of funding is NIDA. For this reason, a majority of MPD data is neuro- and behavior-related.
This lesson provides an overview of GeneWeaver, a web application for the integrated cross-species analysis of functional genomics data to find convergent evidence from heterogeneous sources.
Longitudinal Online Research and Imaging System (LORIS) is a web-based data and project management software for neuroimaging research studies. It is an open source framework for storing and processing behavioural, clinical, neuroimaging and genetic data. LORIS also makes it easy to manage large datasets acquired over time in a longitudinal study, or at different locations in a large multi-site study.
This talk covers the Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse (NITRC), a free one-stop-shop collaboratory for science researchers that need resources such as neuroimaging analysis software, publicly available data sets, or computing power.
This lesson outlines NeuroMorpho.org, a centrally curated inventory of digitally reconstructed neurons, which contrains contributions from dozens of laboratories worldwide and is continuously updated as new morphological reconstructions are collected, published, and shared.
This talk covers the Human Connectome Project, which aims to provide an unparalleled compilation of neural data, an interface to graphically navigate this data, and the opportunity to achieve never before realized conclusions about the living human brain.
In this lecture, attendees will learn how Mutant Mouse Resource and Research Center (MMRRC) archives, cryopreserves, and distributes scientifically valuable genetically engineered mouse strains and mouse ES cell lines for the genetics and biomedical research community.
This lesson provides an overview of the database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP), which was developed to archive and distribute the data and results from studies that have investigated the interaction of genotype and phenotype in humans.
This talk deals with Identifiers.org, a central infrastructure for findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable (FAIR) data, which provides a range of services to promote the citability of individual data providers and integration with e-infrastructures.
This lesson describes the principles underlying functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), tractography, and parcellation. These tools and concepts are explained in a broader context of neural connectivity and mental health.
This tutorial introduces pipelines and methods to compute brain connectomes from fMRI data. With corresponding code and repositories, participants can follow along and learn how to programmatically preprocess, curate, and analyze functional and structural brain data to produce connectivity matrices.
Maximize Your Research With Cloud Workspaces is a talk aimed at researchers who are looking for innovative ways to set up and execute their life science data analyses in a collaborative, extensible, open-source cloud environment. This panel discussion is brought to you by MetaCell and scientists from leading universities who share their experiences of advanced analysis and collaborative learning through the Cloud.
In this lecture, you will learn about virtual research environments (VREs) and their technical limitations, (i.e., a computing platform and the software stack behind it) and the security measures which should be considered during implementation.
