The Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology (NWB:N) project, led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in collaboration with the Allen Institute for Brain Science and multiple neuroscience labs, has been selected for a 2019 R&D100 Award by R&D World magazine.
Neurodata Without Borders: Neurophysiology (NWB:N) is a data standard for neurophysiology, providing neuroscientists with a common standard to share, archive, use, and build common analysis tools for neurophysiology data. NWB:N is designed to store a variety of neurophysiology data, including data from intracellular and extracellular electrophysiology experiments, data from optical physiology experiments, and tracking and stimulus data. The project includes not only the NWB format, but also a broad range of software for data standardization and application programming interfaces (APIs) for reading and writing the data as well as high-value data sets that have been translated into the NWB data standard.
