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 lecture introduces you to the basics of the Amazon Web Services public cloud. It covers the fundamentals of cloud computing and goes through both the motivations and processes involved in moving your research computing to the cloud.
This talk presents an overview of CBRAIN, a web-based platform that allows neuroscientists to perform computationally intensive data analyses by connecting them to high-performance computing facilities across Canada and around the world.
This lesson is the first of three hands-on tutorials as part of the workshop Research Workflows for Collaborative Neuroscience. This tutorial goes over how to visualize data with Scanpy, a scalable toolkit for analyzing single-cell gene expression.
This hands-on tutorial walks you through DataJoint platform, highlighting features and schema which can be used to build robost neuroscientific pipelines.
In this third and final hands-on tutorial from the Research Workflows for Collaborative Neuroscience workshop, you will learn about workflow orchestration using open source tools like DataJoint and Flyte.
This tutorial demonstrates how to work with neuronal data using MATLAB, including actional potentials and spike counts, orientation tuing curves in visual cortex, and spatial maps of firing rates.
In this lesson, users will learn how to appropriately sort and bin neural spikes, allowing for the generation of a common and powerful visualization tool in neuroscience, the histogram.
This module covers how the brain interacts with the world through motor movements. Motor movements underlie so much of our functioning, our speech, the opening and closing of our eyes, and the beating of our hearts.
This lesson provides an overview of the structure and function of the neuron, its components and mechanisms, action potentials, and the many glial cells that support it.
