Welcome to the Pathbase web site.

Pathbase is a database of histopathology photomicrographs and macroscopic images derived from mutant or genetically manipulated mice. Images can be retrieved by searching for specific lesions or class of lesion, by genetic locus, or by a wide set of parameters shown on the Advanced Search Interface.

Lesions are described according to the Pathbase pathology ontology developed by the Pathbase European Consortium, and available here or on the BioPortal website

Pathbase was originally funded under the European Commission's Fifth framework programme (QLRI-1999-00320) and now sustained under funding from the Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Union. It is free for everyone's use.

As this is a community resource, we would like to encourage everyone to upload their own images, contribute comments to images and send us their feedback.
