How do I access raw RNA-seq data (e.g., FASTQ, bam)?


Links to raw data for each project will eventually be posted on the Transcriptional Landscape of the Brain “Explore” page after they become available. Current publications and data available for download follow:

  • Single cell / nucleus RNA-seq collected as through BICCN is available through BCDC (and via link above).
  • Aging, Dementia, and TBI Study raw data is on NIAGADS (see link above).
  • BrainSpan Atlas of the Developing Human Brain: download raw data from RNA-seq and several other modalities is available through dbGaP, here.

Raw data for a few mouse pre-BICCN studies is available through GEO/SRA:

For the mouse VISp data from Tasic et al., Nature Neuroscience (2016), raw data are available on GEO at GSE71585.

For mouse VISp and ALM data from Tasic et al., Nature (2018), raw data is available at GSE115746. If you’re going for one dataset for VISp, I would recommend this one due to the use of newer RNA-seq chemistry with better gene detection.

Additional mouse VISp data from Daigle et al., Cell (2018) is available at GSE112846.
