A Database of High Resolution Episcopic Microsocopy Images


Embryo Imaging

This web site contains a collection of high resolution images of mouse embryos produced using high resolution episcopic microscopy (HREM).

This is an ongoing project funded by the Wellcome Trust to provide comprehensive imaging of normal and mutant mouse embryos that will complement the standard anatomical texts and form the basis for systematic phenotyping. The project is supported by the Medical Research Council through the MRC National Institute for Medical Research.

Each data set is a series of block-face images generated during sectioning through an entire embryo, typically cut at 2-3┬Ám. Datasets are organised by approximate developmental stage and each embryo has been assigned a DMDD ID (DMDDID) for identification.
