Science Hangout with Alex Bae, lead author on Eyewire’s “Cell” Publication



Congratulations Eyewirers!  As you may have heard, Eyewire’s latest research has been published in the journal Cell and all 29,276 Eyewirers who helped are coauthors. Thanks to a monumental effort of the community and the lab, there are new ganglion cell type classifications, including 6 new ones.

Players were invited to learn more about this publication during a live Science Hangout with lead authors Alex Bae, Shang Mu, and Nick Turner. You’ll be able to join via this link at the scheduled time. Please note you will need to download the free videoconferencing software Zoom prior to the event.
