Connectomics of the outer retina in eLife

3d_cell_590_complete_coneThe first paper from my lab “Connectivity map of bipolar cells and photoreceptors in the mouse retina” has just been published by eLife. Congratulations to Christian for his first paper as well!

Together with Timm Schubert from Thomas Euler’s lab we reconstructed the photoreceptors in a publicly available EM dataset of retinal tissue. We build  on the work of Moritz Helmstaedter  and colleagues, who made their entire dataset and code available – to me this is a great example of how open science can fuel discovery.  Our code and data can be found here. The project was our first adventure in connectomics, which provided a great learning experience for everybody involved.
