The brain is an incredibly complex organ, due in part to the sheer number of different cell types that compose its structure. DropViz, a project from the McCarroll Lab at Harvard Medical School and the Macosko Lab at the Broad Institute, aims to shed some light on these cells. DropViz is a collection of comprehensive RNAseq data taken from nine different parts of the mouse brain that has been compiled in a format that allows users to search for genes in these particular regions to see their expression levels. On the website, users can explore cell types and compare genes within or across regions. Although DropViz currently only includes a few regions in the mouse brain, it promises to be an invaluable resource for neuroscientists hoping to closely examine gene expression in the brain.
