About the Photoperiodism database

About this project

The photoperiodism database has a quantitative genome-wide expression profile of the adult mouse pars tuberalis (PT) region under chronical short-day and long-day conditions.


Photoperiodism data were derived by members in Laboratory for Systems Biology, Functional Genomics Unit, RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB), and in Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, Kinki University School of Medicine.
