We are pleased to announce a new release of VFB, including the ability to query the whole adult, larval and embryonic neuroanatomy, and to layer the Janelia FlyLight 3D images on the stack viewer.
Users can now choose to query ‘All Neuroanatomy’ or to restrict their queries to ‘Adult Brain’. Queries can now be done on , the adult thoracico-abdominal ganglion, sense organs, and motor neurons, among others. For example, searching for ventral cibarial sense organ:
Find the term on the autocomplete and select it.
From here, further queries on expression are possible, just as previously for the adult brain.
We have also added the ability to layer the 3D Janelia FlyLight images on stack viewer. Users can now build composite images with any of the Janelia lines, FlyCircuit neurons, neuroblast and fruitless clones.
Janelia 3D images can be added from any expression queries, clicking on ‘See in Viewer’. For example, a query for transgenes expressed in the ‘wedge’ lists:
Looking at GMR27B03 in the stack viewer:
You can now build composite images with the Janelia lines. For any image in the stack viewer, click ‘Add to composite view’, and then go back to run more queries and add any other images you want (up to 3 at a time for each composite).
You have any any feedback please let us know!
