New Whole Human Brain Data Explorable in the ABC Atlas

The Allen Brain Cell Atlas (ABC Atlas) has been updated with new data!

Data from Transcriptomic diversity of cell types across the adult human brain is now explorable in the ABC Atlas. This dataset includes more than three million cells sampled from the adult human brain. Samples were isolated from ~100 dissections from three donors and assayed using single-nucleus RNA sequencing. The resulting cells were clustered into hierarchical groups of 31 superclusters, 461 clusters, and 3313 subclusters. Additionally, categorical neurotransmitter type annotations were assigned to clusters based on expression (or lack thereof) of one or more neurotransmitter-associated marker genes. Included in this dataset includes two tSNE plots - one plot contains approximately 900k non-neuronal cells and the other contains approximately 2.5m neuronal cells.
