About the Gene Expression Database (GXD)

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.

Adult Mouse Anatomy Ontology

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.
