Summary

This Blueprint-funded Resource supports the design, creation, and characterization of Cre-recombinase-expressing ("Cre-Driver") mouse lines on the C57B1/6 background, which can be used to drive expression of reporter genes and conditional-ready alleles in the mouse nervous system. A MATLAB toolbox used in the paper that can be used to plug in other cell-type transcriptomes to infer their spatial distribution in the mouse brain.
