ABSTRACT: The mouse has become the leading animal model for studying biological processes in mammals. Creation of additional genomic and genetic resources will make the mouse an even more useful model for the research community. On the basis of recommendations from the scientific community, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) plans to support grants to generate a 'working draft' sequence of the mouse genome by 2003, systematic mutagenesis and phenotyping centres, repositories for mouse strain maintenance, distribution and cryopreservation and training fellowships in mouse pathobiology.
