Allen Brain Atlas - Mouse Spinal Cord A genome-wide map of gene expression throughout the adult and juvenile mouse spinal cord, with images revealing gene expression patterns for each gene down to the cellular level.

Allen Brain Atlas – Mouse Brain  A genome-wide, three-dimensional map of gene expression in the adult mouse brain.

Allen Reference Atlases  Full-color, high-resolution, web-based digital brain atlases accompanied by a systematic, hierarchically organized taxonomy of mouse brain structures.  An interactive multiresolution brain atlas based on over 20 million megapixels of sub-micron resolution, annotated, scanned images of serial sections of both primate and non-primate brains.

LONI Atlases Accurate and representative atlases of human and non-human brain from the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI) at the University of California at Los Angeles.

The Whole Brain Atlas   A catalog of images of the human brain, healthy and diseased. Sponsored by the Departments of Radiology and Neurology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, the Countway Library of Medicine, and the American Academy of Neurology.

Visible Human Project  Data set of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the normal male and female human bodies. From the Department of Health and Human Services, National Inst. of Health, National Library of Medicine, and LHNCBC.

NCBI: Tools for data mining
The gateway to the data mining tools offered at the National Center for Biotechnology(NCBI). Includes the tools for nucleotide sequence analysis, protein sequence analysis and proteomics, structures, genome analysis, gene expression, and programming.


Primal Pictures 3D computer-generated models of human anatomy. Users may manipulate the images by rotating, zooming, and peeling away layers, while viewing accompanying text.
