Welcome to the XSPAN web site


The overall objective of XSPAN is to support cross-species access to tissue-based genetic information through the development of an internet-based cross-species anatomy network, i.e. a cross-species anatomy ontology integration system.

This system will provide interoperability between databases of key model embryos which will, in turn, facilitate access to gene expression and other tissue-based data across species, and to other genomics and proteomics resources.

XSPAN is a joint project between the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University, and the Schools of Biomedical Sciences and Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.

XSPAN is funded by the UK's Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC)
