Trans-NIH Mouse Initiative


The Mouse Phenome Project

The purpose of this project is to establish a collection of baseline phenotypic data on commonly used and genetically diverse inbred mouse strains through a coordinated international effort. The information will be incorporated into the Mouse Phenome Database and will enable investigators to identify appropriate strains for: physiological testing; drug discovery; toxicology studies; mutagenesis; disease onset and susceptibility; new models of human disease; QTL analyses and identification of new genes; and unraveling the influence of environment on genotype.
