Trans-NIH Mouse Initiative


International Mouse Strain Resources

This is initially a collaborative project between The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, USA and the MRC Mammalian Genetics Unit, Harwell, UK. The principle aim of this project is to provide electronically searchable databases, via the WWW, in order that the international research community can find the necessary resources to carry out fundamental research. It aims to promote the use of the mouse as a model organism for research into human disease, as well as into mammalian physiology and genetics.
