The Kidney Development Database was created to collect in one place the data from a large number of developmental studies that have a bearing on the study of kidney development. With its oldest parts dating back to 1993/4, it is, as far as we know, the earliest computer database in the field of vertebrate organogenesis. It is updated frequently, often in response to its users' suggestions (for which we are always grateful).

Data are displayed in tables, arranged according to a standard scheme of kidney development explained in the key. Many of the entries are derived from low-power in situs or published text-only descriptions, and should therefore be interpreted with mild caution.

The database should be cited as follows; Davies JA and Brandli AW "The Kidney Development Database";   and
