Events & Training

Open for (neuro)science symposium: tutorials

At the end of each day of the Open for (neuro)science symposium, join us for tutorials to learn how and why to integrate selected open resources from the Allen Institute for Brain Science into your research. Tutorial registration is included in the symposium registration process.

The tutorials do not assume any prior experience with the open Allen Institute for Brain Science resource being covered. Certain tutorials may assume prior Python experience, as noted.

Join us for more tutorials leading up to the symposium in the Best of Allen Brain Map series featuring additional selected resources.

Pre-symposium tutorials

Allen Cell Types Database - Transcriptomics

March 8, 2021 | 11:00am - 12:30pm

The Allen Cell Types Database contains multi-modal characterization of cells from the adult human and mouse visual cortex, based on their electrophysiological, molecular, and structural properties.

A key feature of this dataset is single-cell transcriptomics from tens of thousands of cells from the human and mouse brain as well as taxonomic classifications based on these cells. Learn how to access and analyze this database, what types of data it contains, and how to integrate it into your own research.

Allen Brain Observatory

March 9, 2021 | 11:00am - 12:30pm

The Allen Brain Observatory includes 2-photon calcium imaging and dense electrophysiological recordings from the visual cortex of awake mice.

The data has been collected under highly standardized conditions using rich visual stimulus sets to facilitate comparisons across experiments and recording modalities. These readily accessible, well-documented datasets can be used by the community to test new analysis methods, evaluate models of neural function, or generate ideas for targeted studies.

Python experience recommended.

Wednesday concurrent tutorials: MICrONS Explorer

March 10, 2021 | 11:00am - 12:30pm

The MICrONS Explorer contains large-scale electron microscopy (EM) reconstructions of cortical circuitry of the mouse visual cortex and corresponding functional imaging data from the same neurons.

Python experience recommended.

Wednesday concurrent tutorials: Common Coordinate Framework CCFv3

March 10, 2021 | 11:00am - 12:30pm

CCFv3 is a complete, high-resolution 3D atlas of the mouse brain meant to serve as a common reference for the neuroscience community.

It enables precise co-registration of any mouse brain data from any research group onto a common 3D space, and provides fine anatomical detail to the location of individual cells. Learn how to access CCFv3 and use mouse brain data in the framework.

Python experience recommended.
