GENSAT Database from NLM

GENSAT stands for Gene Expression Nervous System ATlas. The GENSAT project aims to map the expression of all genes expressed in the mouse brain at various stages of development. 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


The data generated from the GENSAT project are freely available for public or private use. We do request that the project be cited in any derivative works.
