Join us for a 3-day symposium March 8-10 spotlighting our current research and tools available on Allen Brain Map. Each day of the symposium will include hands-on tutorials to help you find, access and analyze select open resources. A pre-symposium tutorial on two new datasets from the Allen Cell Types Database will be hosted on February 24. Previous pre-symposium tutorial webinars are available to watch on our YouTube channel.
