The BANC is open!

Hi Flyers! As mentioned in yesterday’s Town Hall, the BANC is open!

We are pleased to announce a new dataset! The BANC (Brain and Nerve Cord) encompasses an entire fly brain and spinal cord equivalent. It will provide an unprecedented opportunity to understand links between the brain and behavior. If you enjoyed contributing to the first connectome on FlyWire, this is your chance to take part in the next big thing!

Check out this presentation from BANC creator Wei-Chung Lee of Harvard Medical School for a 10 minute intro to the project.

We’ll be organizing a live demo session in the coming week or two, so stay tuned for that!
