Welcome to EMBRYS!

EMBRYS is a digital atlas of in situ gene expression patterns in the developing mouse embryo constructed by the Systems BioMedicine Laboratory (Asahara's Lab) at the National Center for Child Health and Development and now maintained at Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU). This database contains the expression patterns of 1,520 transcription factors (TFs) and TF-related factors in mouse embryos at E9.5, 10.5, and 11.5. Expression patterns are determined by whole-mount in situ hybridization with digoxygenin-labeled riboprobes. [See more...]

To retrieve gene expression patterns, searches can be initiated by entering the information in the box located at the top of this page, and click "Search". Queries can be made using either gene symbol or NCBI Gene ID. Following query, the images are displayed by clicking the desired gene symbol listed in the box. [See more...]

Annotation of gene expression was evaluated on each tissues and organs (see Methods: Annotation of Gene Expression Patterns) and the data can be downroaded from here (MS-Excel file).
