New publication from Marco Capogna's Group in Nature Neuroscience

Emma Louth and Marco Capogna from Marco Capogna's Group are co-authors on a new publication in nature neuroscience entitled: "A community-based transcriptomics classification and nomenclature of neocortical cell types."

This theoretical article led by Allen Institute for Brain Science Seattle scientists proposes a novel transcriptome-based taxonomy of cell types for the mammalian neocortex. The proposed approach is based on a probabilistic definition of cell types that incorporate data from different methodologies, developmental stages and species – including humans. This community-based taxonomy could serve as an example for cell type atlases not only for the brain but also for other parts of the body.
