Expression pattern analysis using whole mount in situ hybridization is also in progress. The protocols for the in situ analysis are available at our WWW site that you can enter through the DDBJ home page.

We think it is a good idea to collect the information obtained by using the cDNA clones and to share by the community. We believe that even negative data could be useful to other people. Thus, we would like to ask the requesters to return information with respect to the clones. In particular, results of antisense RNA experiments (description of phenotypes, typical images of the phenotypes, and so on) should be very useful to worm researchers. We will prepare several forms to input information at the NEXTDB WWW site (click "feedback information"). Sending it by e-mail to us is also welcome. After checking the content, we will make the information available immediately at the WWW site and will make it searchable.
