What is Expression Atlas?

Expression Atlas is an EMBL-EBI database and web-service that curates, re-analyses and displays gene expression data across species and biological conditions such as different tissues, cell types, developmental stages and diseases.

Expression Atlas aims to help answer questions such as ‘where is my favourite gene expressed?’ or ‘how does its expression change in a disease?’. To achieve this objective, the Expression Atlas project involves data curation, data analysis and provides a web application to access and visualise publicly available data (Figure 1).

Figure 1 Expression Atlas includes data curation, analysis, search and visualisation of gene expression experiments.
