Molecular atlas of the brain in the Human Cell Atlas initiative
The goal of the EU-funded BRAINTIME project is to contribute to the Human Cell Atlas initiative by delivering major new data-sets on human brain development and ageing. World-leading international laboratories in the field of single-cell genomics and multi-omics will collaborate on this project. Researchers will analyse the developing human midbrain and hindbrain to generate an atlas of monoaminergic cell populations in both healthy brain and in neurodegenerative cases. They will embed the new cell type maps into 3D contexts and temporal developmental models. BRAINTIME will establish protocols and algorithms to allow flexible model testing and perturbation analysis on midbrain and hindbrain tissues as well as brain tissue analysis at single-cell level, that can be used to probe other brain regions and other human tissues.
