NIH's Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative - Cell Census Network (BICCN) aims to provide researchers and the public with a comprehensive reference of the diverse cell types in human, mouse, and marmoset brain. A network of integrated centers and laboratories including U01, U19 data centers, R24 data archives, and a U24 Brain Cell Data Center (BCDC) are working collaboratively to share these data with the community.  This site is the entry portal to the data, tools, and knowledge for this program.

Data, Tools, and Knowledge for Cell Types

A goal of the  Brain Cell Data Center (BCDC) is to make all regularly released data available to the public. R24 Archives for transcriptomic based and image based data provide the archival storage and access for these data. As computational and visualization tools for these data are developed they will be released and linked here. As our knowledge of the relationship of these data modalities is uncovered, cell type summary knowledge will be presented to help enhance of our understanding of the role of cell types in the brain.
