This major update includes 12,693 additional reconstructions from 35 new datasets. The new data added in these last 6 months equal the total amount accumulated in the first seven years.

This release also introduce several new functionalities, including
(1) bibliography documenting data re-use from nearly 500 citations;
(2) ontology-smart searches by species, brain regions, neuron types, and experimental conditions;
(3) DOI minting capability for each article-associated dataset; and
(4) API enabling object-oriented access to data and metadata.

The literature coverage database was also updated to include publications through August 2016. Please visit the What’s new page for details on the added data and other updates. We appreciate any and all feedback and comments.

We are continuously grateful to all the data contributors who freely share their hard-won tracings with the community.
