Free of charge mouse phenotyping service for European researchers
Thursday, 27 February 2014
Second phenotyping call of the EC FP7 funded INFRAFRONTIER-I3 project open until March 15, 2014.
A total of 22 mouse mutant lines can be characterised through a broad based primary phenotyping pipeline in all the major adult organ systems and most areas of major human disease.
The service provided consists of a comprehensive first line phenotyping of a mutant line with appropriate control. Possible starting materials are targeted ES cells (Sanger Institute), breeding pairs or frozen embryos depending on centre-specific requirements as described on page 6 of the application document. In case of the Sanger Institute, lines of interest can be nominated from the Sanger ES cell collection from which then a KO mouse line will be produced and phenotyped. The available Sanger ES cells for this service are available here for download.
