Title: Bgee: Gene Expression Evolution

Abstract: Bgee is a database to retrieve and compare gene expression patterns between animal species. Bgee first maps heterogeneous expression data (currently EST, Affymetrix, and in situ hybridization data) on anatomy and development of different species. Then, in order to perform automated cross species comparisons, homology relationships across anatomies, and comparison criteria between developmental stages, are designed. Data can be retrieved by ontology browsing, textual search, expression search, or advanced expression search. Gene expression patterns can be compared by selecting any gene family (e.g. ENSFM00500000270089). The full content of the Bgee expression database, the ontologies, the homology links between anatomical ontologies, and the relationships between developmental ontologies, are all available in the download section. More information is provided in the documentation. All data sources used in Bgee are listed on the data sources page. [Information of the supplier]
