Bgee is a database to retrieve and compare gene expression patterns in multiple animal species, produced from multiple data types (RNA-Seq, Affymetrix, in situ hybridization, and EST data) and from multiple data sets (including GTEx data).
Bgee is based exclusively on curated "normal", healthy, expression data (e.g., no gene knock-out, no treatment, no disease), to provide a comparable reference of normal gene expression.
Bgee produces calls of presence/absence of expression, and of differential over-/under-expression, integrated along with information of gene orthology, and of homology between organs. This allows comparisons of expression patterns between species.
This is an incremental update of Bgee, with an updated RNA-Seq dataset, using the same genomes and ontologies as for the previous version Bgee 14.0. New RNA-Seq libraries have been added; some libraries previously integrated in Bgee have been discarded following corrections and improvements of quality controls. The Affymetrix, in situ hybridization, and EST datasets, are the same as for the previous release of Bgee 14.0. All calls of presence/absence of expression, expression scores, and all the Bgee tools and download files, have been updated accordingly.
For most species in Bgee, notably non-human primates and farm and domestic animals, this represents a major improvement of the anatomy and life stage coverage of the data, making all Bgee tools much more useful, notably TopAnat and the gene pages.
You can still access Bgee version 14.0 at /bgee14_1/bgee14.
