Figure 1

Database Structure.

(A) The Discovery database contains three main components, (i) In vivo development, (ii) Stem cell Differentiation, and (iii) Regenerative Medicine. (B) Sections within each main component (e.g. the In Vivo Development component is made up of cells contained in anatomical compartments that in turn are contained in organs/tissues. The sections are connected by reciprocal links (black arrows). (C) Within each database component, main data categories and their main source of references are listed, e.g. inside Stem Cell Differentiation, growth factors are listed and linked to PubMed citations.
