Python package for brain atlas manipulation now available on PyPI
We recently released a Python package called brain-atlas-toolkit to the Python Package Index (PyPI.org). This means that you can now obtain this package via:
pip install brain-atlas-toolkit
This package provides tools for navigating hierarchical brain atlases, such as the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas. It also allows you to upload a custom atlas. This package is useful for doing things like: getting a list of all child brain regions contained within a parent brain region, getting the parent region of a given brain region, getting the acronym of a brain region given a name, and visualizing branches in the atlas hierarchy in human readable format.
