The Mutant Mouse Resource and Research Center (MMRRC) distributes and cryopreserves scientifically valuable, genetically engineered mouse strains and mouse ES cell lines with potential value for the genetics and biomedical research community.
The Jackson Laboratory maintains and distributes chromosome-aberration stocks that provide mouse models for Down syndrome, as well as the study of chromosomal aneuploidy.
For over half a century Oak Ridge National Laboratory generated and maintained a diverse collection of mouse stocks. A large part of this collection derived from induced mutagenesis programs using radiation or chemical mutagens. Many of these mutant stocks were cryopreserved at the Oak Ridge facility. In 2009 The Jackson Laboratory accepted and agreed to distribute the cryopreserved embryos and sperm in order that this resource would continue to be available to the worldwide research community.

Investigating gamete development with a focus on spermatogenesis.
Researches the genetics underlying behavior and identifies relationships among behavioral traits.
This resource provides mouse models for facial, dental, eye, ear and skull development research, as well as mouse models of human craniofacial syndromes.
The Cre Portal contains curated data about all recombinase-containing transgenes and knock-ins developed in mice to provide a comprehensive resource delineating known recombinase activity patterns and allowing users to find relevant mouse resources for their studies.
The Parkinson’s Disease Mouse Model Resource characterizes and distributes new mouse models of Parkinsonism and Parkinson’s disease.
Describes mouse models for ocular research available at The Jackson Laboratory and provides a list of known mouse mutations that affect vision.
Genetic Resource Science initiates and develops resource-generating research. Our team: identifies and implements innovative technologies for genetic research; makes and distributes new mouse models; and provides extensive genetic and phenotypic information on JAX mouse strains.
International database resource for the laboratory mouse, providing integrated genetic, genomic, and biological data.
The International Mouse Strain Resource offers users a combined catalog of worldwide mouse resources (live, cryopreserved, and embryonic stem cells), with direct access to repository sites holding those resources of interest.

Scientists around the world are working to generate a targeted knockout mutation for every gene in the mouse genome through the Knockout Mouse Project (KOMP) which is providing critical tools for understanding gene function and the genetic causes of human diseases.
Dr. Reinholdt’s research focuses on comparative and functional mammalian genomics, reproductive development and stem cell biology.
Senior Research Scientist
Mice harboring spontaneous mutations have long been a major source for animal models of human genetic disorders, particularly mendelian diseases. The Mouse Mutant Resource maintains over 700 established mutant strains.
The SMSR maintains mice that are important tools for genetic analysis of complex diseases, including consomic strains.
