The annual IEEE Scientific Visualization Contest is happening now! This year's contest covers gene expression in the developing mouse brain, courtesy of the Allen Institute for Brain Science. The data set tracks the level of gene expression for ~2000 genes in a 3D mouse brain from embryonic stages through adulthood. These expression levels are recorded within annotated 3D anatomical regions that change size and shape (and even divide) during development.
The goals for contest participants is to help identify spatial and temporal gene expression patterns in this complex data set.
Have a look at the contest website for more details:
Submissions are due at the end of July, 2013.
We look forward to your submissions!
