Welcome to mtoc explorer

mtoc explorer is a community resource dedicated to study the evolution of Microtubule Organizing Centers (MTOCs) and MTOC derived organelles. This includes cilia/flagella, centrioles, centrosomes, spindle pole bodies, nucleus associated bodies, and other non-standard MTOC's from all major eukaryotic lineages.

Currently the collection consists of over 400 electron microscopy images annotated using an ontology developed to capture the observed diversity.

Thank you to all of our annotators!

mtoc explorer is a community effort, and we could never have been able to create such a comprehensive collection without our annotators, to whom we are incredibly gratefull for all of their time and effort. Thank you!
