 The Connectome of the C. elegans male - The Male Wiring Project (Deprecated)

 Please visit http://www.wormwiring.org for continuted support of male connectivity data

 About this project:

We developed an open-source software platform, Elegance, to annotate Electron Micrographs of the C. elegans male posterior nervous system. Please visit our github page for everything software related.
Our image data are publicly visible via Worm Image or The Open Connectome Project
To understand the anatomical localization of these EM series visit our map guide or download our anatomical guide.

* AN neurons are AVF, AVH, or AVJ
** PVPL and PVPR of the hermaphrodite are called PVU and PVS, respectively, in the male.
