Project Summary


The BSI-NI (Neuroinformatics) Project was pursued in FY2007-FY 2017 to create a database covering research achievements of RIKEN Brain Science Institute (BSI) to promote information sharing within its organization and with the public domain. Developments by BSI laboratories were supported by the BSI Director's Fund. Operation of the project and services were supported by BSI-NI committee and Neuroinformatics Japan Center at RIKEN BSI.  Since April 2018, this website is renamed to CBS-NI and its service is managed by Neuroinformatics Unit, RIKEN Center for Brain Science by aiming the sustainable accessibility of the database. Some of contents are continuously updated by labs at RIKEN Center for Brain Science.
