Bravo! Today the 10,000th neuron was completed in FlyWire!

Eyewirers in FlyWire are blazing along with 10,028 neurons as of midnight on 9/27/2022. Over the past 2 years, 80,000 neurons have been proofread in total in FlyWire, which means that an astonishing 11% of unique cells were proofread by the elite citizen science community who began only in July.

8,711 or 86% of the 10,000+ completed neurons are unique. That means that among the 10k, corrections were made to 1,317 cells that were previously declared complete.

Destination: Connectome

Our official metric of completion is the percentage of synapses that have been assigned to proofread segments. The optic lobe is sitting at 49%. Our goal is 95% of pre-synaptic partners assigned.

Check out the chart below for a snapshot of current progress. Proofreading is divided into Central Brain, which is complete, and optic lobes.
