Abstract

We describe an Extensible Markup Language (XML) application that defines a common data format for the storage and processing of neuronal morphology data. The application, MorphML, is consistent with current neuronal digitization methods and is also compatible with existing simulation software environments for creating compartmental models of neurons based on morphology data. We also describe a tool, nemo2xml, which generates MorphML documents corresponding to digitized neuronal morphology files for one particular data format, the Nevin or binary branch tree syntax.
