As part of the European Renal Genome Project, a multidisciplinary team of researchers from various institutions teamed up to build a comprehensive kidney atlas as a tool for researchers, clinicians, and even the general public to learn more about the organ. The Kidney Atlas was presented at the Center for Molecular Medicine, the place that coordinated the research effort, during this week’s symposium.
Here are the main components of the atlas:
EuReGene’s primary Gene Expression Database Xenopus Gene Expression Database (XGEbase) Kidney Section Viewer and Query Database Adult Nephron Graphical Query Database Whole Mount 3D Models of Highlighted Kidney Structures Video of Kidney Development Morphology Phenotype data
