Structural rules underlying functional properties of cortical circuits are poorly understood. To explore these rules systematically, we integrated information from extensive literature curation and large-scale experimental surveys into a data-driven, biologically realistic model of the mouse primary visual cortex. The model was constructed at two levels of granularity, using either biophysically-detailed or point-neurons, with identical network connectivity. Both variants were compared to each other and to experimental recordings of neural activity during presentation of visual stimuli to awake mice. While constructing and tuning these networks to recapitulate experimental data, we identified a set of rules governing cell-class specific connectivity and synaptic strengths. These structural constraints constitute hypotheses that can be tested experimentally. Despite their distinct single cell abstraction, spatially extended or point-models, both perform similarly at the level of firing rate distributions. All data and models are freely available as a resource for the community.
