Rare Diseases

Each rare and orphan disease affects fewer than 200,000 individuals in the United States, and approximately 7,000 rare diseases have been described to date. The Jackson Laboratory offers the world's largest collection of spontaneous, targeted, and transgenic mutant mouse strains, hundreds of which model rare diseases.
