报告题目：Linking brain-wide gene expression and neuroimaging data
摘要： The availability of brain-wide gene expression atlases, such as Allen Brain Atlas, has made it possible to connect spatial expression patterns of thousands of genes to different kinds of imaging-derived phenotypes. A growing body of evidence shows the close relationship between gene expression and diverse brain structure and function properties. These analyses can help gain insights into the transcriptional correlate of the neuroimaging phenotypes in health and disease. In this talk, I will briefly introduce the transcriptomic datasets available and review the workflows for relating transcriptomes to neuroimaging data. I will also introduce the Brain Annotation Toolbox (BAT), which we developed to provide functional/genetic annotations for the results of neuroimaging studies.
