The Gene Expression Nervous System Atlas (GENSAT)

Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) has discontinued support for the NCBI GENSAT database, and it has been removed from the Entrez System.

About

The Gene Expression Nervous System Atlas (GENSAT)

is is one of the first large-scale efforts to look at where specific genes are expressed in the brain and spinal cord. The project is funded by the NIH's National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).

The project focuses on two techniques:

  • Evaluation of unmodified mice lines for expression of a given gene using radiolabelled riboprobes and in situ hybridization.
  • Creation of transgenic mice lines containing a BAC construct that expresses a marker gene in the same environment as the native gene.
