NIH Awards Neurome $200K for Digital Brain Atlas as Gene Expression Display Tool

NEW YORK, June 7 (GenomeWeb News) - Neurome has received a Phase I SBIR grant worth $200,000 to develop and validate software to graphically delineate brain regions on digital images for the production of 3-D digital brain atlases for mouse models, the firm said today.

 

According to Neurome, a second goal of the Phase I project will be to assess the initial application of the digital atlas as a display tool for gene expression data from either in situ hybridization or DNA microarray analyses.

 

Neurome said that the integration of gene expression data from DNA microarrays and its TOGA open-system gene-expression profiling technology will provide valuable visual displays of numerical data.
