Allen Brain Atlas API (RRID:SCR_005984)

API and demo application for accessing the Allen Brain Atlas Mouse Brain data. Data available via the API includes download high resolution images, expression data from a 3D volume, 3D coordinates of the Allen Reference Atlas, and searching genes with similar gene expression profiles using NeuroBlast. Data made available includes: * High resolution images for gene expression, connectivity, and histology experiments, as well as annotated atlas images * 3-D expression summaries registered to a reference space for the Mouse Brain and Developing Mouse Brain * Primary microarray results for the Human Brain and Non-Human Primate * RNA sequencing results for the Developing Human Brain * MRI and DTI files for Human Brain The API consists of the following resources: * RESTful model access * Image download service * 3-D expression summary download service * Differential expression search services * NeuroBlast correlative searches * Image-to-image synchronization service * Structure graph download service
