FAIRsharing is here! From our first incarnation, BioSharing.org, which focussed on the life sciences, we are growing into FAIRsharing.org, to serve users across all disciplines and support Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) data.

ready verteberate Homologous Organ Groups


General Information
vHOG is a multi-species anatomical ontology for the vertebrate lineage, developed as part of the Bgee project. A mapping to species-specific anatomical ontologies is also provided. This mapping represents homology-strict relationships, in the sense of HOM:0000007 historical homology. Each mapping has been manually reviewed, and we provide confidence codes and references when available.

Implementing Databases (1)
Bgee DataBase for Gene Expression Evolution
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). 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.
