Human brain atlas, revealing genetic activity in 3D, published online

The first detailed maps of genetic activity in the human brain have been published online by scientists. This freely accessible resource shows that the expression of genes across adult human brains is largely similar from one individual to the next, with only a few notable differences.

‘This study demonstrates the value of a global analysis of gene expression throughout the entire brain and has implications for understanding brain function, development, evolution and disease’, said Dr Ed Lein, who was involved in the study carried out at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, Seattle.
