What Is AGEA?

The Allen Institute has built a data-driven three-dimensional atlas of the adult C57Bl/6J mouse brain based on the ISH gene expression images of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas. Only the coronal gene expression data were used to construct this application. The AGEA feature (which stands for Anatomic Gene Expression Atlas) characterizes the multi-scale spatial relationship in the mouse brain as derived from coronal gene expression data without a prior knowledge of classical anatomy. Using the AGEA feature of the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, you can:


Each row of the search results includes the following information.

You will have to visually inspect the dataset to ensure the signal that AGEA detected was real and not an artifact of the image collection.
