RNA tomography is a method in which cryo-sectioning and RNA sequencing are combined to create transcriptome wide gene expression maps. We have adapted this method for C. elegans and have generated high-resolution anteroposterior gene expression maps of four young adult males and four young adult hermaphrodites (Ebbing et al., submitted). Here, we provide these gene expression maps to the community for open exploration.
We provide gene expression profiles of males and hermaphrodites, per individual section (20 µm) per aggregated anatomic region. The gene expression maps can be explored by entering a gene name, which provides information on:
