    Banc-Bot Guide

    Welcome to the BANC! We’re happy you’ve decided to join us to begin proofreading in the GNG (Gnathal Ganglia) of fruit fly brain and nerve cord! If you’re coming from Eyewire, or even if you are a seasoned Flyer, with this dataset we’ll be tracking progress a little differently. We’ll be using a little friend called…

    Expert Proofreading Tips for the BANC (Brain and Nerve Cord) Dataset

    Here are some proofreading tips specific to the BANC (Brain and Nerve Cord) dataset in FlyWire. Using Mitochondria For Continuations For this particular dataset, you may often find that the dark mitochondria in a branch cause the AI to grow confused and terminate the branch instead of finding the extension. However, although most mitochondria don’t…

    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

    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…
