NeuroMorpho v. 5.7

Post by ted »

Version 5.7 of NeuroMorpho.Org was released on 30 May, 2014.

The release included 29 new data sets (1341 reconstructions), including from three new animal species (dragonfly, moth, and sheep). The database now contains 11,335 reconstructions from 144 contributing labs. More than 3.2 million reconstructions were downloaded in over 130,000 unique visits from 146 countries.

Please visit the What’s new page for details on data included in this release, including new species strains, brain regions, cell types, and experimental conditions. The Acknowledgements include details on contributing labs, and the About page provides an updated overview of the repository content.

A new user-friendly functionality, OntoSearch, was introduced in this release, enabling more powerful searches of species and strains with automated synonym translation, taxonomical relations, and keyword auto-completion. The literature coverage database was also updated to include publications through March 2014.

We are continuously grateful to all the data owners who freely share their data with the community.

We always appreciate any and all feedback and comments.
