BReNt- Brain Research Network proposes
   Working on the standard coordinate space,
    creating and sharing data-sets, methods and tools for analyses: and 
    activate brain science !
Make invisible gene expression visible and share the information !

BReNt- starts with activating ViBrism for the open science 
     ViBrism is ...                                                                                                  
a database for Gene Expression Maps in the Anatomical Context of the Mouse Brain. 
It contains 36,558 maps and You can search the gene maps  by gene names, gene IDs and expression similarities. 
                     Example 3D maps are here               >>          Examples

You can create your ViBrism-DB of your need  using Transcriptome Tomography
Introducing our project #1

  + We share experimantal 
          hardware and methods
  + We share datasets
  + We share analysis tools

Activate brain science and    innovation

BReNt- starts with Activating ViBrism for the open science

A steady step for an understanding of brain complexity and its disorder. 

creating a hundred times precise expression maps of the mouse, which can be compared to MRI data or other expression data in the standard coordinate Waxholm space organized by INCF.

More than 85% of gene kinds are expressed in the brain and the combinatorial expression is orchestrating  complex brain function.

The mouse brain is a practical model for studying human physiological and pathological conditions.
What do you know about genes and brain functions?
