Trans-NIH Mouse Initiative


Facility for Mouse Mutagenesis and Phenotyping: Developmental Defects

The Facility for Mouse Mutagenesis for Developmental Defects at Baylor College of Medicine is supported by the NIH to produce and phenotype mutant mouse strains with defects in embryonic and postembryonic development. The mutant strains are available to the scientific community. Their Website includes information on available mutants categorized according to phenotype.

Current mutant categories include:

  • Embryonic lethal
  • Eye
  • Growth
  • Hematological
  • Metabolism
  • Neurological
  • Skeletal
  • Skin and Coat
  • Urogenital
  • Undefined

Additionally, the Website provides an e-mail alert service that will notify you when mutants with particular phenotypes are produced.
