Describing where genes express is an important step in understanding the function of gene products. In this slice through the mouse brain, Purkinje cell protein 4 (Pcp4) expression is shown with an associated deformed anatomical map. The amount of Pcp4 transcripts in each cell is represented by the different colors (see Carson et al).
