The Allen Institute has released the first set of data from their Brain Observatory project. Many of you already know about this, but I wanted to post about it to encourage people to take a bit of time to check out the data set themselves. They have a github page with materials that can help get you set up to explore and analyze their data.
Here’s why you should check it out: they’re listening. The team at the Allen Institute wants to create data that a broad audience would want to explore. Give them feedback and let them know what you’d like to see. This is a unique opportunity to influence a large-scale project. They’re really listening. Engage with them!
