Conserved gene patterning across human brains provide insights into health and disease
Allen Institute researchers have identified a surprisingly small set of just 32 gene-expression patterns for all 20,000 genes across 132 functionally distinct human brain regions, and these patterns appear to be common to all individuals. In research published this month in Nature Neuroscience, the researchers used data for six brains from the publicly available Allen … more…
