Using the the mouse brain reference atlas for cell quantification: example publication



A really nice extension of the Allen Mouse Brain reference atlas has been published, for mapping single cell-level data. A Cell Atlas for the Mouse Brain by Ero et al (2018) maps presumptive cells from histological data into the Allen Brain Atlas reference space, as cell proxies. Comparisons between broad classes of cells (ie, clia vs neurons) are made, as well as extrapolation to cell quantity measures. The authors created a web portal as well - cool!
