The intestinal crypt/villus in situ hybridization database (CVD) query interface is a web-based tool to search for genes with similar relative expression patterns along the crypt/villus axis of the mammalian intestine. The CVD is an online database holding information for relative gene expression patterns in the mammalian intestine and is based on the scoring of in situ hybridization experiments reported in the literature. CVD contains expression data for 88 different genes collected from 156 different in situ hybridization profiles. The web-based query interface allows execution of both single gene queries and pattern searches. The query results provide links to the most relevant public gene databases.
