Databases where different types of information from different sources can be integrated, cross-referenced and interactively accessed are necessary for building a quantitative understanding of the molecular and cell biology intrinsic to the morphogenesis of an embryo. Tassy and colleagues recently reported the development of software tailor-made to perform such a task, along with the generation and integration of three-dimensional anatomical models of embryos. They convincingly illustrated the utility of their approach by applying it to the early ascidian embryo.
