The EMA Anatomy Atlas of Mouse Development uses embryological mouse models to provide a digital atlas of mouse development. It is based on the definitive books of mouse embryonic development by Theiler (1989) and Kaufman (1992) yet extends these studies by creating a series of three dimensional computer models of mouse embryos at successive stages of development with defined anatomical domains linked by a stage-by-stage ontology of anatomical names.
UNSW Embryology educational site, termed the new Embryology Wiki, provides extensive data on mouse embryology. Pages on developmental topics can be added by experts in that specific research area and the content subject to easy review and update. Students can also contribute and several undergraduate courses use content on this site.
Caltech Atlas of Mouse Development
The µMRI Atlas of Mouse Development is a3D digital atlas of normal mouse development constructed from magnetic resonance image (MRI) data.Specimens are prepared in aqueous, isotonic solutions so there is no tissue shrinkage. Limited specimen handling minimizes physical perturbation of the embryos. The results of this approach is perhaps some of the most accurate geometric representations of developing mouse anatomy available.

MalaCards is an integrated database of human maladies and their annotations, modeled on the architecture and richness of the popular GeneCards database of human genes. The MalaCards disease and disorders database is organized into ''disease cards'', each integrating prioritized information, and listing numerous known aliases for each disease, along with a variety of annotations, as well as inter-disease connections, empowered by the GeneCards relational database, searches, and GeneDecks set-analyses. Annotations include: symptoms, drugs, articles, genes, clinical trials, related diseases/disorders and more. An automatic computational information retrieval engine populates the disease cards, using remote data, as well as information gleaned using the GeneCards platform to compile the disease database. The MalaCards disease database integrates both specialized and general disease lists, including rare diseases, genetic diseases, complex disorders and more.

GeneCards is a searchable, integrated database of human genes that provides comprehensive, updated, and user-friendly information on all known and predicted human genes. GeneCards extracts and integrates gene-related data, including genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, genetic, clinical, and functional information. This is automatically mined from >100 carefully selected web sources, thereby allowing one-stop access to a very broad information base. GeneCards overcomes barriers of data format and heterogeneity, and uses standard nomenclature and approved gene symbols. It presents a rich subset of data for each gene, and provides deep links to the original sources for further scrutiny. GeneCards is widely used, and assists in the understanding of gene-related aspects of biology and medicine.
