Register to attend a webinar on February 1, 2024, designed to share a new collection of papers reporting the first complete cell type atlas of a mammalian brain.
A collection of papers published in Nature last month revealed a comprehensive and multi-modal profile of cells across the entire mouse brain. The papers provide researchers with a resource of more than 5,000 neuronal and non-neuronal cell types, their location, and molecular information within the adult whole mouse brain based on assays of over 32 million cells. Of the 10 studies included in this collection, seven are funded through the NIH BRAIN Initiative Cell Census Network (BICCN), and two are funded through the larger NIH BRAIN Initiative.
A webinar, which is free and open to the public, will take place February 1, 2024, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. PT and will present highlights from these new studies as well as offer insights for future research.
The researchers behind this collection of articles will present their studies and participate in a brief Q&A session. You can learn more about the speakers and their topics on the webinar website. This BICCN research lays the groundwork for the BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network, the BRAIN Initiative’s next effort to understand the cell and cellular functions of the mammalian brain.
More about the collection of studies, published in Nature on December 13, 2023, can be found on the BICCN website.
