Summary

NIH's Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative - Cell Census Network (BICCN) aims to provide researchers and the public with a comprehensive reference of the diverse cell types in human, mouse, and marmoset brain. A network of integrated centers and laboratories including U01, U19 data centers, R24 data archives, and a U24 Brain Cell Data Center (BCDC) are working collaboratively to share these data with the community.  This site is the entry portal to the data, tools, and knowledge for this program.

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.
