    FlyWire Proofreading Tips

    In this document we’re going to go over some common problems you are likely to come across when proofreading in FlyWire. Using these tips you’ll learn how to better spot cell structure errors, and work around tricky spots in the dataset. X-Shaped Mergers These are what you’d traditionally think of as a merger, with a…

  • Cell Labeling/Adding Annotations

    Cell Labeling/Adding Annotations

    Proofreading cells is one of our main objectives in FlyWire. But as we near completion on the Fly connectome, we also need help labeling proofread cells, sometimes also referred to as cell annotation. This guide will get you started on your cell annotation journey, and provide resources to helpful tools that can assist in leveling…

  • FlyWire Addons

    FlyWire Addons

    Thanks so much to Flyer and volunteer dev @Krzysztof Kruk for bringing a bunch of amazing new features to FlyWire! This post will act as a central repository for all these addons. Feel free to add as many as you like to FlyWire to improve your proofreading experience!

  • New Cell Drop!

    New Cell Drop!

    We’re excited to share that today, July 21, we’ve dropped ~1,200 new cell segments into the Proofreading Queue for you to check-out! Like the previous drop of ~600 segments, these cells continue to be part of our goal to proofread the synaptic pathways of the optic lobe as they connect to the central brain of…

  • Optic Lobe Cell Catalog

    Optic Lobe Cell Catalog

    Much of a fly’s cognitive processing power is dedicated to vision. Understanding circuits underlying vision may uncover secrets of sensory processing in other intelligent animals. Here’s an overview of the main cell types of the fly optic lobes.

    To trace, or not to trace? How to know when your cell is finished

    How perfect is too perfect? Let’s go over some tricks and tips to decide when it’s time to stop proofreading.

    Welcome to FlyWire, a new project to map the entire adult Drosophila (fruit fly) brain!

  • Key Differences Between FlyWire & Eyewire

    Key Differences Between FlyWire & Eyewire

    If you’re joining FlyWire from our original citizen science project Eyewire, you’ll have swiftly noticed that while interpreting EM slide data remains fundamentally the same between both platforms, many things on FlyWire work differently. These distinctions can be summarized under new commands, new techniques, and new challenges.
