Welcome to BraInSitu


This website is an online resource for those interested in gene expression in the central nervous system (especially mammalian brain).  Specifically, you can find detailed protocols for single and double in situ hybridization (ISH) method as well as many photos of mammalian (mostly mouse and monkey) brains stained with various gene probes.  You can also  search the database for the probes used in our past studies, which we believe are quite useful for brain studies in general.  These probes are available on request.

ISH method can visualize gene expression "in situ".  With this technique, we will be able to see the brain from a new perspective.  We hope that this website becomes a gateway to explore the new world of "brains".
