Allen Institute for Brain Science launches Allen Human Brain Atlas
Date:5/24/2010

SEATTLE, Wash.May 24, 2010The Allen Institute for Brain Science announced today that it has launched the Allen Human Brain Atlas, a publicly available online atlas charting genes at work throughout the human brain. The data provided in this initial data release represent the most extensive and detailed body of information about gene activity in the human brain to date, documenting which genes are expressed, or "turned on" where. In the coming years, the Atlas will be expanded with more data and more sophisticated search, analysis and visualization tools to create a comprehensive resource useful to an increasingly wide range of scientists and research programs worldwide.

The Allen Human Brain Atlas, available at www.brain-map.org, is a unique multi-modal atlas of the human brain that integrates anatomic and genomic information to create a searchable, three-dimensional map of gene activity in the brain. Data modalities in this resource include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and histologyproviding information about gross neuroanatomy, pathways of neural connections, and microscopic anatomy, respectivelyas well as gene expression data derived from multiple approaches.

"The launch of the Allen Human Brain Atlas is a significant milestone for the Allen Institute," said Allan Jones, Ph.D., chief executive officer of the Allen Institute. "This is the largest and most challenging project we have undertaken to date, and after over two years of planning and nine months of data generation, we are delighted to now be able to get this first, significant dataset into the hands of the research community."

The data in this inaugural release provide both a broad survey of gene activity throughout the entire adult human brain using microarrays, in which the entire genome can be analyzed in a single experiment, as well as more focused cellular-resolution analyses of the expressi
