9:10am: Rebecca Hodge, PhD, Senior Scientist. Cell type diversity in human cerebral cortex.




Supercharge your Research Using Data and Tools from the Allen Brain Atlas

This workshop will introduce attendees to the variety of scientific resources from the Allen Institute for Brain Science. Multiple large-scale, multidimensional, publicly available datasets provide insight into the transcriptional, functional, and structural landscape of the mouse and human brain. These datasets also provide insights into gene expression in the adult and developing human brain, and in neurotypical and select disease states. This workshop will focus on Allen Brain Atlas resources relevant for basic research in mammalian neuroscience with a focus on the human brain, how to access data contained in the resources, and potential research applications through an interactive sample experiment. After attending the workshop, participants will be prepared to use the breadth of these datasets in their own research.
