The data shows various developmental stages of Xenopus Laevis, which is a model organism used to understand gene expression. The aim is to assess what concentration of morpholino (or blocking agent) will “knock out” a gene of interest. This is typically quite variable and difficult to assess, but with Zegami it can be observed how dark the expression pattern is (black areas visible in the image) in the embryo. It allows to determine the best concentration of morpholino to use.
