Welcome to FlyWire, a new project to map the entire adult Drosophila (fruit fly) brain!
FlyWire: Column Countdown
Our first goal in FlyWire is an optical column. We initially define this as all the synaptic partners of one Medulla neuron. Together, that comes to 160 cells total. How fast can we map them?
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.
