    1. Additional broader impacts will emerge from analyses of the whooping crane dataset. Through collaborations with endangered species biologists in the US Geological Survey, these analyses will have direct relevance to specific management actions for the whooping crane, such as the timing, group size, and composition of crane reintroductions and potentially their training with ultra-light aircraft.

      Broader impact for management of endangered species

    1. The database should have an associated web site for access by internal researchers working on atlas construction and quite likely a separate Web site for public access to published datasets.

      Need for web site access by internal researchers vs web-based public access to published datasets

    2. Just as comprehensive datasets of genomic sequence have revolutionalized biological discovery, large-scale quantitative measurements of gene expression and morphology will certainly be of great assistance in enabling computational embryology in the future. Such datasets will form the essential basis for systems level, computational models of molecular pathways and how gene expression concentrations and interactions alter to drive changes in cell shape, movement, connection, and differentiation. In this review, we discuss the strategies and methods used to generate such datasets.
