Edinburgh Mouse Atlas of Gene Expression (EMAGE) course

The MRC funded Human Genetics Unit in Edinburgh, in collaboration with
the University of Edinburgh, has developed the Edinburgh Mouse ATLAS
(EMAP) - a series of three-dimensional models of mouse embryos at
successive stages of development, linked to a standard anatomical
nomenclature.  

Available on-line at http://genex.hgu.mrc.ac.uk/ EMAP forms the
framework for the gene expression database EMAGE. 

The EMAGE database will assist researchers studying mouse development,
and it is expected that many laboratories will want to submit the
results of their gene expression experiments. 

A two-day course has been devised to take participants step-by-step
through the use of EMAP and EMAGE resources.  The course will also train
researchers in how to submit their own data to the EMAGE database, and
demonstrate how this resource will help researchers to interpret their
own gene expression results.  Moreover, by mapping their data onto a
common blueprint, researchers will be able to compare their gene
expression results with other data from different laboratories around
the world.  Subjects considered on the course will be:

 - Classification of Developmental Stages
 - Introduction to the Anatomy Browser
 - Explanation of EMAGE - data route from Submission to Inclusion
 - Mapping Data (Tie points and painting)
 - Database Querying

Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own gene expression
data in the form of JPG or GIF images of wholemount or sectioned 'in
situs', as there will be plenty of time on the course to make a genuine
submission. 

Venue: Imperial College, London
Date: 17-18 August 2004
Cost: 235 Pounds
