Modern techniques in molecular biology are providing a great deal of information about the genetic control of embryo development, particularly about the patterns of gene expression. Advances in computing technology now make it feasible and affordable to reconstruct these three-dimensional (3-D) patterns onto 3-D representations of the embryo for detailed comparison and analysis, and their visualization provides considerable insight into the networks of gene activity. Here, we discuss methods…

The mouse atlas and graphical gene-expression database

TLDR
This article reviews the progress that has been made in this project and describes its two major components, CD-ROMs of the 3-D reconstructions to be held on the user's computer and a gene-expression database that will be maintained at a host site, the two being linked over the internet by a complex Java-based interface for submitting data and querying the database.

A database for mouse development.

TLDR
An ongoing project between the Jackson Laboratory, the Medical Research Council, and the University of Edinburgh to establish a gene expression information resource for mouse development that would contain such information organized so that it can be readily queried.

Two rhombomeres are altered in Hoxa-1 mutant mice.

TLDR
The abnormal relationship between the rhombencephalon and the epithelial inner ear may account for the aplasia and faulty differentiation of the membranous labyrinth, the disruption of the cartilaginous otic capsule and the disorganisation of some middle ear structures.

[3-dimensional reconstruction of histological serial sections using a computer].

TLDR
The reconstructs obtained from this largely automated technique exhibit a perfect alignment of the sections and have a much higher degree of objectivity than those obtained by manual image orientation or by semiautomated techniques that do not use fiducials.

Mouse molar morphogenesis revisited by three-dimensional reconstruction. II. Spatial distribution of mitoses and apoptosis in cap to bell staged first and second upper molar teeth.

TLDR
Tooth morphogenesis is a complex multifactorial process in which differential mitotic activities and cell death play important roles and attempts were made to correlate changes in the distribution of apoptotic cells and bodies and/or mitoses with morphogenesis.

Volume graphics

TLDR
Volume graphics, which employs a volume buffer of voxels for 3D scene representation, is discussed and the problems associated with the volume buffer representation (such as discreteness, memory size, processing time, and loss of geometric representation) are discussed.

Video camera calibration for optical densitometry

TLDR
An efficient technique for calibrating video cameras to record optical density (OD) from microscopic images is described, which corrects for variation over the field of the brightfield and darkfield intensities and requires a single calibration filter.
