Many universities and research groups hold collections of embryos from many model species. Very few have well-characterised collections of embryos showing human development.
There are also many groups now taking advantage of molecular methods and new imaging techniques to either re-evaluate historic collections, or analysing new embryonic material. Some of these new databases are being made available online for research purposes.
