Anatomic Gene Expression Atlas (AGEA)
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. The project is called AGEA and stands for Anatomic Gene Expression Atlas. Essentially, AGEA characterizes the multi-scale spatial relationship in the mouse brain as derived from gene expression data without a prior knowledge of classical anatomy. In the AGEA online application, you can:
- View and navigate 3D spatial relationship maps (Correlation mode);
- Explore a transcriptome based spatial organization of the brain (Clusters mode) and,
- Search for genes with local regionality as defined by AGEA (Gene Finder mode).
