Animal Health Reports for the Mouse Biology Program's Barrier-Maintained Mouse Facilities

Bioinformatics and Analytics

The Mouse Biology Program bioinformatics team has direct experience with mouse model research. The group designs and maintains systems for high throughput genotyping and phenotyping, including data collection, hosting, visualization, and analysis, dynamic web presentation, and publication quality reporting.


Here at the Mouse Biology Program (MBP), we have extensive experience with mouse breeding and colony management. Our trained professional staff can assist you with devising and implementing a breeding plan to generate the cohort or mouse model your research requires.


At the MBP, our cryopreservation and recovery services program provides you with the peace of mind and assurance that your research investment is protected. Our new advances in reproductive technologies allow us to cryopreserve and recover your mouse strains rapidly, reliably, and most important, cost-effectively.


The MBP offers a variety of services for mouse genotyping, customized to meet the needs of our clients.
