An atlas of mouse development

We contributed preliminary analyses to the publication (Diez-Roux et al, 2011) of the freely accessible Eurexpress digital transcriptome atlas (, of the E14.5 mouse embryo. Over 15,000 genes were annotated for hundreds of anatomical structures and regions, down to (almost) cellular level, allowing the identification of tissue-specific and tissue-overlapping gene networks. We illustrated the value of the Eurexpress atlas by finding novel coexpressed clusters of genes active in particular structures such as the developing eye.
