TiGER - Tissue-specific Gene Expression and Regulation
A database for tissue-specific gene expression and regulation. It contains three types of data: tissue-specific gene expression profiles (based on EST data), combinatorial gene regulations, and cis-regulatory module detections. It has gene view, transcription factor view and tissue view. It also provides the preferential expression site for the queried gene.

A human gene compendium that provides gene related information such as function, pathways, expression and interactions for all known and predicted human genes.
Rebhan M, Chalifa-Caspi V, Prilusky J, Lancet D. GeneCards: integrating information about genes, proteins and diseases. Trends Genet. 1997 Apr;13(4):163. PubMed PMID: 9097728.

A database that provides gene expression at EST level, for various normal and disease tissues, and developmental stages. The level of expression is indicated by transcripts per million (TPM).

Bgee - a dataBase for Gene Expression Evolution
A database to retrieve and compare gene expression patterns between animal species, currrently covering five, including human and mouse. Bgee maps heterogeneous expression data (currently EST, Affymetrix, and in situ hybridization) on anatomical and developmental ontologies.
Parmentier G, Bastian FB, Robinson-Rechavi M. Homolonto: generating homology relationships by pairwise alignment of ontologies and application to vertebrate anatomy. Bioinformatics. 2010 Jul 15;26(14):1766-71. Epub 2010 Jun 2. PubMed PMID: 20519284; PubMed Central PMCID: PMC2894521.
A repository of tissue distribution profiles that identifies and ranks genes in the spectrum of tissue specificity, based on Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) data. The database provides information on tissue specific genes, housekeeping genes and a small number of tissues that can be said to share the gene at a certain specificity level. The database currently has many model plant and animal species.

TiProD - Tissue specific Promoter Database
A database that retrieves promoter sequences according to their tissue-specificity or other functional groupings. TiPROD uses the CGAP (Cancer Genome Anatomy Project) data and calculates tissue-specific gene expression for healthy tissues and assigns these tissue specificity to their corresponding regulatory regions based on EPD, DBTSS, and Ensembl annotation. Gene Ontology terms or ID can also be queried, other than UniGene ID.
Chen X, Wu JM, Hornischer K, Kel A, Wingender E. TiProD: the Tissue-specific Promoter Database. Nucleic Acids Res. 2006 Jan 1;34(Database issue):D104-7. PubMed PMID: 16381824; PubMed Central PMCID: PMC1347475.
