What is the IMPC?
The International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) is an international infrastructure aiming at identifying the function of every gene in the mouse genome. As a consortium we are phenotyping mouse knockout lines for all 20,000 or so protein-coding genes. This is achieved by phenotypically characterising mice mutants and controls, with the aim of increasing our understanding about organism development and gene function, and identifying models for human disease.
More about the IMPC, available mice, phenotyping protocols, raw data, results of statistical pipelines and curated phenotype data can be accessed through the IMPC website.
