Whole-animal connectomes of both Caenorhabditis elegans sexes.

Nature, 571, 63-71, 2019.

The first whole-animal connectomes for both adult sexes of a single species. "As none of the EM series cover an entire single animal, to generate whole animal connectomes, data from different  reconstruction series were combined and the remaining gaps were filled by extrapolating known connectivity across repetitive regions." The editorial introducing the paper also credited artificial intelligence with key input in the completion and integration of all the data to elucidate all the connections. The graphic displays of highly complex information in the printed version and interactive online version of this paper are particularly remarkable.
