Patterns of Gene Expression in Drosophila Embryogenesis

Database of embryonic expression patterns using a high throughput RNA in situ hybridization of the protein-coding genes identified in the Drosophila melanogaster genome with images and controlled vocabulary annotations. At the end of production pipeline gene expression patterns are documented by taking a large number of digital images of individual embryos. The quality and identity of the captured image data are verified by independently derived microarray time-course analysis of gene expression using Affymetrix GeneChip technology. Gene expression patterns are annotated with controlled vocabulary for developmental anatomy of Drosophila embryogenesis. Image, microarray and annotation data are stored in a modified version of Gene Ontology database and the entire dataset is available on the web in browsable and searchable form or MySQL dump can be downloaded. So far, they have examined expression of 7507 genes and documented them with 111184 digital photographs.
