The HBP Neuroinformatics Platform The HBP Neuroinformatics Platform


The Neuroinformatics Platform serves as the Human Brain Project's search engine for distributed data, curated data repositories, brain atlases and knowledge about the brain.The Platform consists of APIs for querying and a web-based platform and application programming interface (APIs), i.e. a set of standards, protocols and tools for building software applications.

Users can search and collate high quality neuroscience data generated within and outside the HBP. Data can be examined by species, contributing laboratory, methodology, brain region, and data type, thereby allowing functionality not currently available elsewhere. The data are predominantly organized into atlases (HBP Strategic Rodent Brain Atlases and HBP Human Brain Atlases) and linked to the KnowledgeSpace – a collaborative community-based encyclopaedia linking brain research concepts to the latest data, models and literature.
