European mouse mutant archive non routine working programme i (EMMAWORKS)

Objective

The mouse has become the key model for biomedical and medical research. The European scientific community is internationally competitive in the production and characterisation of mouse models for inherited diseases. However, it is proving to be impossible, for even the largest and best-funded research institutes, to retain all of these animals. It is essential that all mutants that are created are retained and held in a well-organised, central repository-network from which they can readily be made available to interested investigators. To meet these needs the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA) was established and implemented. This application seeks funding for incorporation of significant number of new medically relevant mouse strains. In addition the immediate access to this valuable biological resource for all European countries will be a result of the proposed work.
