Express: Transcriptome database for mouse eye tissues across multiple developmental stages

Express contains transcript level expression data obtained from 21 lens and 35 retina RNA-Seq mouse samples. We downloaded the raw datasets, aligned them to reference genome and quantified transcript level expression for known and novel transcripts. When then downloaded the reference gene and transcript information and organized them along with the expression data in a MySQL database. We finally developed a PHP backend to interact with the database and a frontend to interact with the user and to visualize the query results.
