Abstract

The large amounts of gene-expression data on mouse development are now too extensive to be stored in any format other than that of a database. Furthermore, as this data is intrinsically graphical and as, in the early developmental stages at least, its boundaries do not map directly to those of anatomical tissues, the natural way to store it is in graphical format. We are therefore constructing a database able to handle such graphical gene-expression data by mapping it onto 3-D reconstructions of mouse embryos whose tissues have been delineated. This article reviews the progress that has been made in this project and describes its two major components, CD-ROMs of the 3-D reconstructions to be held on the user’s computer and a gene-expression database that will be maintained at a host site, the two being linked over the internet by a complex Java-based interface for submitting data and querying the database.
