Drs. Yukako Tohsato and Hiroya Itoga in our SSBD team, together with Prof. Tatsumi Hirata (NIG) and colleagues, developed the “NeuroGT database,” which contains whole-brain image data of tagged neurons based on time of neurogenesis. Through NeuroGT, researchers can find suitable neurogenic tagging driver lines for their research.
