We have developed an 'electronic fluorescent protein tool' to allow easy
visualization of the Schmid et al. (2005, Nature Genetics 37:501-6)
AtGenExpress Developmental Atlas gene expression data set. The gene
expression data from this series are stored in our Botany Array Resource
database (normalization: gcRMA) and then the expression values for a given
gene-of-interest are painted onto a diagrammatic representation of
Arabidopsis, with stronger expression indicated by a darker shading. This
tool is in beta-testing, and I'd be happy to receive any feedback.
Our home page is http://bbc.botany.utoronto.ca/ and the eFP tool is
available directly (for now) at
Many thanks to Detlef Weigel and the many others who generated the data -
