Website launched to showcase embryo project data

Organisers of a project to identify the genes that power embryonic development have set up a website where all the data produced will be published.

The Deciphering the Mechanisms of Developmental Disorders (DMDD) programme is funded by the Wellcome Trust and overseen by scientists at the Francis Crick Institute in London. The project will investigate the genes driving embryo development in mice in order to better understand the origins of human developmental disorders.

Tim Mohun, scientific manager for the project, said: “DMDD will provide a novel resource for developmental biologists and clinicians—a database for embryonic development linking gene identity, morphology phenotypes and molecular profiles.”
