About This Portal
The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute generates, characterises, and uses a variety of reagents for mouse genetics research. It also aims to facilitate the distribution of these resources to the external scientific community. Here, you will find unified access to the different resources available from the Institute or its collaborators. The resources include: 129S7 and C57BL6/J bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs), MICER gene targeting vectors, knock-out first conditional-ready gene targeting vectors, embryonic stem (ES) cells with gene targeted mutations or with retroviral gene trap insertions, mutant mouse lines, and phenotypic data generated from the Institute's primary screen.
