About the IMSR
The IMSR is a multi-institutional international
collaboration supporting the use of the mouse as a model system for studying
human biology and disease. The primary goal of the IMSR is to provide a web
searchable catalog that will assist the international research community in
finding the mouse resources they need.
The IMSR began with an initial collaboration between the
Mouse Genome Informatics
(MGI) group at The Jackson Laboratory and the Medical Research Council
Mammalian Genetics Unit
Many institutions and collaborators are now contributing mouse resource
information to the IMSR catalog (see Repositories
Additional institutions and collaborators are now contributing mouse resource
information to the IMSR catalog (see below).
