The establishment of a database of gene-expression patterns derived from systematic high-throughput in situ hybridization studies on whole-mount Drosophila embryos, together with new information on the reannotated Drosophila genome and several recent microarray-based genomic analyses of Drosophila development, vastly increase the breadth and depth that can be reached by developmental genetics.
