Mouse Tumor Biology Database

Our Research Focus

The Mouse Tumor Biology (MTB) Database supports the use of the mouse as a model system of human cancers by providing access to information on and data for:

  • spontaneous and induced tumors in mice
  • genetically defined mice (inbred, hybrid, mutant, and genetically engineered strains of mice) in which tumors arise,
  • genetic factors associated with tumor susceptibility in mice,
  • somatic genetic-mutations observed in tumors,
  • Patient Derived Xenograft (PDX) models,

Examples of the data accessible from MTB include:

  • tumor frequency & latency data,
  • tumor genomic data
  • tumor pathology reports and images,
  • associations of models to the scientific literature,
  • links additional on-line cancer resources
