||The Allen Institute for Brain Science, founded in 2003 by philanthropist Paul G. Allen, is dedicated to understanding how the human brain works in health and disease.
The Allen Human Brain Atlas is a unique multi-modal atlas that maps gene expression across the human brain. Integrating anatomic and genomic information, available data modalities include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), histology, and gene expression data derived from both microarray and in situ hybridization (ISH) approaches. Key features include an "all genes, all structures" microarray survey spatially mapped to the MRI, ISH cellular resolution image data for selected genes in specific brain regions, and an annotated human brain atlas guide. Anatomic and gene-based search options are available, as well as interactive viewing with the Brain Explorer 3D software.
