An important and ongoing focus of biomedical and agricultural avian research is to understand gene function, which for a significant fraction of genes remains unknown. A first step is to determine when and where genes are expressed during development and in the adult. Whole mount in situ hybridization gives precise spatial and temporal resolution of gene expression throughout an embryo, and a comprehensive analysis and centralized repository of in situ hybridization information would provide a valuable research tool.
