Project Details


Drosophila is the only model organism with complex adaptive behaviours for which we also have a powerful genetic toolkit and extensive connectomic and transcriptomic coverage of the nervous system. This offers unparalleled opportunities to reveal the mechanisms by which brains control complex behaviour. Virtual Fly Brain provides a uniquely integrated, queryable view of Drosophila neuroscience data. Established pipelines with all major data providers enable rapid integration of new bulk data. Powerful UI and API allow users to find neurons and reagents from many sources, explore connectomes, visualise and download 3D image data. VFB provides an essential system ensuring key data is released openly and rapidly following FAIR data standards.
