The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative Cell Census Network (BICCN) and other ongoing brain research projects are applying single cell transcriptomic and epigenetic technologies at unprecedented scales to better understand mammalian brains. The utility of these research efforts to advancing brain research is greatly enhanced by making generated data and analysis accessible to the wider community.
The Neuroscience Multi-Omic Archive (NeMO Archive) serves as the primary repository and point of access for genomic data from the BRAIN initiative and several other brain research projects. In addition to a web portal providing searchable access to raw data, NeMO Archive makes available a number of tools including a direct interface between data and cloud-computing resources (terra.bio) as well as a visualization and analysis platform (nemoanalytics.org).
The NeMO Archive is built and maintained by the Institute for Genome Sciences (www.igs.umaryland.edu) at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, under the leadership of Owen White. Key personnel are listed below.
