The IMPC is creating knockout mouse lines for every single protein coding gene in the mouse genome, and characterising them through standardised, quality-controlled phenotyping tests.
See the phenotypes for thousands of gene knockouts. Free database includes raw data, statistics, images, disease associations and interactive embryo viewer at http://www.mousephenotype.org
MBP Rate Updates, Effective February 7, 2019
Mouse Biology Program (MBP) is happy to announce that our per diem rates are going down. These have been reviewed by campus, and approved. Some of our other rates will be changing as well, taking into account the new per diem rates, and changes to supply costs. The new pricing will be posted and take effect as of February 7, 2019. We will honor previously quoted rates for current projects with ongoing services, including new projects quoted and initiated prior to February 7, 2019. Projects initiated after February 6, or any newly requested add-on services to existing projects, will be quoted and billed with the new approved rate(s).
For more information about MBP’s new service rates, please click the “Contact Us” tab on the left-hand side of our website.

NIH Renews Knockout Mouse Program (KOMP)
The Mouse Biology Program (MBP), has been awarded over $29 million from the National Institutes of Health under the next five-year phase of the Knockout Mouse Project, or KOMP. The MBP at UC Davis is the lead organization in a consortium involving research partners at The Centre for Phenogenomics in Toronto, Canada; the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute, or CHORI; and Charles River Laboratories in Wilmington, Massachusetts.
The goal of this phase of the Knockout Mouse Project is to produce and phenotype knockout mouse models for up to 1,000 genes in an effort to better understand the genetic basis for diseases in humans and animals, said principal investigator Kent Lloyd, professor in the Department of Surgery in the UC Davis School of Medicine, and director of the UC Davis Mouse Biology Program
