Gene Expression Database (GXD)
GXD collects and integrates the gene expression information in MGI. Its primary
emphasis is on endogenous gene expression during mouse development.
- How do I...
- .. find expression data for a specific gene and tissue?
- .. find expression data for a tissue during development?
- .. find genes expressed in one tissue but not another?
- .. find references that report expression data for a gene at a specific age?
- Genes studied in expression references
- Genes with expression assay results
- Expression assay results
- Expression images
- Expression assays
- Mouse mutants with expression data
Gene Expression News

- The Gene Expression Data Query form has been re-designed to add new search functions and make it easier to use. In addition to gene function (Gene Ontology) terms, you can now use phenotype or disease terms to define gene sets of interest in expression searches. Auto fill lists for these categories and for anatomical structure searches make it easier to find the appropriate search terms. In addition to Theiler stage, age is now available as a search parameter.
- The mechanisms behind the searches and their returned data summaries have been entirely re-designed. The most noticeable improvement will be the speed of the return. Each search will now return a page with tabbed summaries for the assay results, assays, and genes matching your parameters. Most columns on these summaries are sortable. New columns have been added to provide additional context. The figure links on the assay results tab provide direct access to images of data. Export features have been added to the assay results and genes tabs, allowing results to be downloaded in text or spreadsheet format. The genes list can be forwarded to the MGI batch query to allow you to search for additional information, such as the function, phenotype and/or disease terms associated with the genes of interest.
- We are pleased to announce that additional RNA in situ hybridization data from the GenePaint database are available at accession number J:122989. The GenePaint data set in MGI now includes nearly 290,000 RNA in situ hybridization results examining the expression of over 2,900 genes at E14.5. Nearly 25,000 images accompany these data.
