About JAX GDI

 

The JAX Genetic Diversity Initiative is a strategic effort to increase the awareness and availability of diversity mouse populations and associated tools across the research community. These populations are powering a revolution in model organism research that will enable major advancements in the understanding of complex genetic traits.
