EUCOMM - The European Conditional Mouse Mutagenesis Program is founder member and European cornerstone of the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC).
EUCOMM contributes the largest fraction of conditionally trapped and targeted genes in mouse C57BL/6N embryonic stem (ES) cells to the IKMC.
EUCOMM vectors, mutant ES cells and mutant mice are distributed worldwide, enabling functional genomics research in a standardized and cost-effective manner by a much wider biomedical research community than has been possible previously.
EUCOMM mutant ES cells and vectors can be obtained from the European Mouse Mutant Cell Repository (EuMMCR).
EUCOMM mutant mice are archived and distributed by the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA).
