To facilitate cross-species comparisons, including all connectomic work, we converted nonhuman genes to human homologs when possible. First, a table was created using BioMart of all possible species-species homologs (45). Then, if a 1:1 match existed between a nonhuman gene and a human gene, the nonhuman gene name was converted. Second, if the given gene had multiple potential human homologs but one of those homologs was simply the uppercase of the nonhuman gene in question, the gene name was converted to that specific human homolog. All other remaining genes maintained their original names. This approach allowed appropriate cross-species comparisons without eliminating relevant cross-species differences.
