Subject: Fw: [science_math_hist] Gene-Mapping the DAFN Brain
Date: Tue, 14 Dec 2004 17:11:36 -0000

I found this on a Yahoo group "Science Math history" and though it may be of
interest to some people here:

 ************************  exZZZZZZZZZerpt *********************
 Online map of brain genes to be released --
 Allen-backed effort hailed as *REVOLUTION*

 It has been billed as one of the most massive information-crunching,
 gigabyte-gobbling research endeavors in history...

 A Seattle research organization launched last year by Microsoft Corp.
 co-founder Paul Allen and aimed at stimulating rapid progress in the
 study of how genes work in the brain will today release its first
 interactive, digital "map" displaying the location of specific *GENES*
 in the *BRAIN*.

 The Allen Brain Atlas...is being made available to scientists worldwide
 free of charge...it's the connection between genetics, brain science
 and computing that is so powerful.

 The non-profit Allen Institute for Brain Science...was created...to
 marry computing and neurobiology with the aim of deciphering how
 *GENES* influence brain development, disease and...even memory,
