The Gene Expression Database (GXD) is a community resource for gene expression information from the laboratory mouse. GXD stores and integrates different types of expression data and makes these data freely available in formats appropriate for comprehensive analysis. There is particular emphasis on endogenous gene expression during mouse development. The project is funded by NIH/NICHD grant HD062499.

New expression data are made available on a weekly basis. These data are acquired from the literature by our curatorial staff and via electronic submission. GXD encourages researchers to submit their expression data to us. Data submission both increases the exposure of the work and the amount of data available to the scientific community. Guidelines for submitting data can be found here.
To facilitate electronic submission of expression data, we have developed the Gene Expression Notebook (GEN). Implemented in Microsoft® Excel, the GEN is easy to use and to customize as a laboratory notebook for storing and organizing expression data. Data can then be exported effortlessly for electronic submission to GXD. Researchers interested in obtaining the GEN and its user guide may download them here.
The Adult Mouse Anatomy (MA) ontology has been developed and continues to be refined to provide standardized nomenclature for annotating expression and phenotype data for the adult mouse. The MA organizes anatomical structures for the postnatal mouse spatially and functionally. You can use the browser to view anatomical terms and their relationships in a hierarchical display. We welcome your input. Please contact us with suggestions, additions, or questions about the MA.
