Abstract

The application of informatics to neuroscience goes far beyond 'traditional' bioinformatics modalities such as DNA sequences. In this review, we describe how informatics is being used to study the nervous system at multiple levels, spanning scales from molecules to behavior. The continuing development of standards for data exchange and interoperability, together with increasing awareness and acceptance of the importance of data sharing, are among the key efforts required to advance the field.
