Allen Institute for Brain Science Launches Three New Landmark Atlas Projects Focusing on the Human Brain, Developing Brain and Spinal Cord
Date:3/12/2008

Projects have vast potential to help scientists worldwide gain new insight

into neurological diseases and disorders Institute seeks funding support for human brain, spinal cord and developing

brain projects

SEATTLE, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Allen Institute for Brain Science announced today that it is undertaking three major projects designed to accelerate brain, and spinal cord research, and help scientists worldwide gain new insight into numerous diseases and disorders.

The Institute will create three new Web-based atlas resources that map gene activity in the brain and spinal cord. These include an atlas designed to provide insight into gene expression in the human brain; an atlas of the developing mouse brain designed to illustrate and enhance understanding of gene activity across multiple stages of development from birth through adulthood; and an atlas of the mouse spinal cord designed to inform research into spinal injuries due to disease, disorder or trauma.

The new atlases will be officially known as the Allen Brain Atlas (ABA)- Human Brain, ABA-Developing Mouse Brain, and ABA-Mouse Spinal Cord. Upon completion, the atlases will be made publicly available on the Internet at no charge to users to encourage widespread use and scientific collaboration.

"Building on the success of our inaugural Allen Brain Atlas project, we are inspired to take on projects at the leading edge of science -- creating large-scale resources that will fuel innovation for countless discoveries in brain research," said Allan Jones, Chief Scientific Officer at the Allen Institute. "Scientists in the research community agree that these projects will provide a transformative catalyst for advancing and promoting innovation, ultimately allowing for the most positive impact worldwide. The Institute is uniquely suited to successfully complete these projects because of its established technology platforms a
