Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)

This is where we show you how to use VFBs Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and other tools to explore the available data.

Hacking the connectome

Tutorials from the Virtual Fly Brain “Hacking the connectome” workshop that was run in collaboration with the Drosophila Connectomics Group based at the Dept of Zoology, University of Cambridge.

VFB connect API overview

The VFB connect API provides programmatic access to the databases underlying VFB

Data types

In this notebook we will focus on neuron skeletons - a.k.a. TreeNeurons

Plotting

Explore how to plot neurons in 2d using and in 3d

pymaid

pymaid (python-catmaid) lets you interface with a CATMAID server such as those provided by VFB to host published data from the FAFB dataset.

NBLAST

NBLAST is a method to quantify morphological similarity.

neuprint

The Janelia hemibrain dataset is accessible via neuprint. To programmatically interface with neuprint, we show how to use neuprint-python.
