About LifeMap Discovery®

LifeMap Discovery is a state-of-the-art platform for embryonic development and stem cell biology research.

The database integrates information about embryonic development and stem cell biology, at molecular, cellular and anatomical levels, along with disease-related data and data mining tools. The database application provides a unique and powerful tool for research and discovery in multiple disciplines, including stem cell biology, developmental biology, disease mechanisms and etiology, drug and therapeutic discovery and development.

LifeMap Discovery includes information about:

  • Embryonic Development: Cellular differentiation that occurs during mammalian development, including multiple development paths as; blood, endothelium, motor neurons, bone, cartilage and many more... (Read more)
  • Stem Cell Differentiation: Information regarding cultured stem, progenitor and primary cells, along with related differentiation protocols... (Read more)
  • Regenerative Medicine: Medically relevant information relating to developmental diseases, regenerative medicine and cell therapy applications... (Read more)
  • Gene Expression: Gene expression information is supplied for organs, tissues, anatomical compartments and cells, as well as for stem, progenitor and primary cells, reported to be cultured in vitro... (Read more)
