CGH 14 non-Tgu species proposed
  1. Experiments (identified by # in first column) were nominated by investigators in the community following specific guidelines (Additional File 2). Investigator groups are indicated by Locale and a "group" letter code (columns 2 and 3); asterisk indicates investigators outside of the core group responsible for program development. Experiments were classified according to the Primary Contrast (question) defined by the experimental design, with these general contrasts as indicated by number in the table: 1, Comparative; 2, Brain Sex; 3, Critical Period; 4, Activational; 5, Environmental. CGH: Comparative Genomic Hybridizations validating zebra finch array use against the 14 other species proposed for study across all experiments.
