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.
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 is a general overview of overarching concepts in neuroinformatics research, with a particular focus on clinical approaches to defining, measuring, studying, diagnosing, and treating various brain disorders. Also described are the complex, multi-level nature of brain disorders and the data associated with them, from genes and individual cells up to cortical microcircuits and whole-brain network dynamics. Given the heterogeneity of brain disorders and their underlying mechanisms, this lesson lays out a case for multiscale neuroscience data integration.
This lesson breaks down the principles of Bayesian inference and how it relates to cognitive processes and functions like learning and perception. It is then explained how cognitive models can be built using Bayesian statistics in order to investigate how our brains interface with their environment.
This lesson corresponds to slides 1-64 in the PDF below.
Neuronify is an educational tool meant to create intuition for how neurons and neural networks behave. You can use it to combine neurons with different connections, just like the ones we have in our brain, and explore how changes on single cells lead to behavioral changes in important networks. Neuronify is based on an integrate-and-fire model of neurons. This is one of the simplest models of neurons that exist. It focuses on the spike timing of a neuron and ignores the details of the action potential dynamics. These neurons are modeled as simple RC circuits. When the membrane potential is above a certain threshold, a spike is generated and the voltage is reset to its resting potential. This spike then signals other neurons through its synapses.
Neuronify aims to provide a low entry point to simulation-based neuroscience.
This lecture goes into detailed description of how to process workflows in the virtual research environment (VRE), including approaches for standardization, metadata, containerization, and constructing and maintaining scientific pipelines.
This lesson provides an overview of how to conceptualize, design, implement, and maintain neuroscientific pipelines in via the cloud-based computational reproducibility platform Code Ocean.
In this workshop talk, you will receive a tour of the Code Ocean ScienceOps Platform, a centralized cloud workspace for all teams.
This lecture covers a wide range of aspects regarding neuroinformatics and data governance, describing both their historical developments and current trajectories. Particular tools, platforms, and standards to make your research more FAIR are also discussed.
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.
