The Gene Expression Database (GXD) collects and integrates the gene expression information in MGI.
  • GXD collects data from the following assay types: RNA in situ hybridization; Immunohistochemistry; in situ reporter (knock in); RT-PCR; Northern and Western blots.
  • All data entered into GXD is reviewed by our team of experienced curators with PhDs.
  • It is our curatorial policy to annotate expression patterns based solely on what is written in the manuscript; we do not interpret images presented within papers. We are happy to accept more detailed descriptions of expression patterns from authors and will update database entries accordingly.
  • GXD focuses on endogenous gene expression data in wild-type and mutant mice, including reporter data from knock-in experiments. Currently GXD does not include expression data from other types of transgenic animals, conditional knock-outs, chimeras, animals subjected to treatments, or from cultured material.
  • When we have permission from publishers or providers we include images. All images are displayed with citation information and with copyright.
