RFA on Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Centers
National Center for Research Resources

The Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Centers (MMRRCs) will enhance the availability of, and help to ensure the quality of, genetically altered mice. The MMRRCs will be coordinated and linked electronically, and will include a coordinated database characterizing the animals. Each MMRRC will be capable of maintaining and providing animals, cryopreserving, storing and reconstituting embryos, and of supporting these activities with the necessary administrative and quality control infrastructure. The National Center for Research Resources anticipates making awards in FY 1999 for two or three MMRRCs and one Informatics Coordinating Center for project periods of up to five years. Approximately $3.0 million total costs is expected to be set aside for funding these activities in the initial year.
