How We Generate Our Data

  • Targeting genes that haven’t been studied yet
  • Standardised production methods to knock out genes
  • Mutants and wildtype mice tested under the same phenotyping protocols

Understanding Our Data

  • We generate our own data, it is not aggregated from publications
  • A constantly growing dataset; mice continually tested
  • Data from 19¬†IMPC phenotyping centres, in 11 countries
