This database and web application was developed by J.D. Hogan,
Jessica Keenan, and Lingqi Luo, and supervised by
Cynthia Bradham. This project was developed at Boston University
for BE768 in Spring 2013, with Gary Benson as the instructor.

The sea urchin is a valuable model organism for studing embryonic
development because of the simplicity and functional diversity of its
genome. Cynthia Bradham's lab, which researches the sea urchin L.
variegatus (Lv), performed RNA-seq experiments on the eleven stages
of embryonic development in Lv.
The L. variegatus Embryonic Development Gene Expression Database
(LvEDGEdb) is a database that stores the sequence and gene expression data
for urchin genes for all timepoints. We aim to provide an
intuitive web application that will allow researchers to easily retrieve
and view the data from the database and add new annotations for genes
based on their own research.
