NA: Not Applicable, i.e., no query feature available for early post-natal stages of development; ND: No Data in postnatal development stage [available till TS 26 only]; TS: Theiler stage (A term used to denote the stage of development of a mouse; Theiler, 1989); Bgee: a dataBase for Gene Expression Evolution; MGI (GXD): Mouse Genome Informatics (Gene Expression Database); MRG: Mammalian Reproductive Genetics; 4DXpress: EXpression database in 4D (four dimensions).

2MGEx-Tdb results correspond to genes transcribed/dormant on specific days between day 0-20 and many genes cancel due to contradictory results. However, one can obtain better results for specific stage using this database, as indicated in the third column.

3The results include some repeats.
