Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: $65.5 million from NIH to create brain atlas

(University of California - Berkeley) A new project led by the Allen Institute for Brain Science and funded by $65.5 million from the NIH will create a cell atlas of the brain. With collaborators at UC Berkeley and Weill Cornell Medicine, the team will count, catalog and connect the many different cell types in the mouse brain as prelude to doing the same for the human brain. John Ngai will create mouse models for each cell type using CRISPR-Cas9 technology.
