This article introduces a CD-ROM containing whole-mount and histological images of normal growth and development of both the mouse mammary gland and the human breast. It also covers nonneoplastic lesions and neoplasias in both species including a catalog of lesions in genetically engineered mice. Instructions, with examples, on techniques such as whole-mount preparation, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, and common histological stains are provided. The images are based on full-scale 1996 × 1640 pixel images at 300 pixels/inch and are annotated. Every genetically engineered model has one or more accompanying citations. Tables are provided for orientation and organization. The CD includes zoom capabilities, a search engine, and a help mode.
