Mouse resources

The Mouse Resources Portal gives one-stop access to the Sanger Institute's mouse and phenotyping resources and is the home of the Sanger Institute Mouse Genetics Project.

Resources found on the Mouse Resources Portal include:

  • Mouse phenotyping data generated by the Institute's Mouse Genetics Project
  • mutant mouse lines
  • knock-out first conditional-ready gene targeting vectors
  • embryonic stem (ES) cells with gene targeted mutations or with gene trap insertions
  • 129S7 and C57BL6/J bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs)
  • MICER gene targeting vectors

For more information please see our faculty, teams and pipelines.

The Institute is a leading contributor to the European Conditional Mouse Mutagenesis Program (EUCOMM), the NIH-funded Knockout mouse programmes of KOMP and KOMP2, the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC), and the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC).

We have generated BACs for various mouse strains that are displayed on the Mouse Resources Portal and Ensembl and are available from Source BioScience LifeSciences and the BACPAC Resources Center. Mouse ES cells are available from MMRC UC Davis.

Data generated at the Sanger Institute is available from our from the Mouse Genomes Project.
