The Gene Expression Database (GXD) is a community resource of gene expression information from the laboratory mouse. By combining different types of expression data, GXD provides increasingly complete information about expression profiles of transcripts and proteins in different mouse strains and mutants. Integration with the Mouse Genome Database (MGD) and the Mouse Sequence Database (MGS) enables a combined analysis of genotype, sequence, expression, and phenotype data. Continued development and use of controlled vocabularies and classification schemes, such as those being built as part of the Gene Ontology project, and extensive interconnections with other databases place the expression information in the larger biological and analytical context.

During the last year, we have increased the utility of GXD by refining query and display interfaces and by adding and making new data available on a daily basis. Further, we have developed a new and much extended version of the Gene Expression Notebook (GEN), a user-friendly and customizable tool to store and organize expression data and images in the laboratory and to submit data for inclusion in GXD.  Recent developments will be presented and new ways to integrate and correlate expression and phenotype data will be discussed.

GXD is accessible through the Mouse Genome Informatics web site at or directly at

GEN is freely available for download at 

GXD is supported by NIH grant HD33745. The Gene Ontology project is supported by NIH grant HG02273.
