Gallus Expression in Situ Hybridization Analysis (GEISHA): A Chicken Embryo Gene Expression Database


The chicken embryo develops similarly to a human embryo, and each contains about 20,000 genes. Researchers around the world are studying where and when these genes are used during embryo development in organisms such as chickens to increase their knowledge of how certain human birth defects, such as congenital heart defects, are set in motion.
