GemPharmatech and UC Davis Mouse Biology Program announced an agreement in April 2021 for UC Davis Mouse Biology Program to provide services to re-animate, cryopreserve and ship live mice to GemPharmatech customers in the US.
The International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) is an international effort by 19 research institutions to identify the function of every protein-coding gene in the mouse genome. The IMPC’s mission is to fill this knowledge gap and create a comprehensive catalogue of mammalian gene function that is freely available for researchers.
As a founding member of the Knockout Mouse Project (KOMP), the first phase of the program focused on generating targeted knockout mutations in mouse ES cells. Now in its second phase, the international effort of the KOMP2 project, relies upon the successful generation of strains of knockout mice from original KOMP ES cells. All of the data generated by the KOMP2 program are collected and made public by a central Data Coordination Center Database, with support from Mouse Genome Informatics.
The Consortium for Public Outreach for Animal Research is an international consortium of organizations dedicated to informing the public about, and advocating for the responsible use of animals in research.
With Verndari, we are providing the preclinical testing for their COVID-19 vaccine candidate. This collaboration illustrates one of the many ways we can assist biotech companies using our expertise and facilities.
As a startup, Ravata Solutions reached out to the MBP to further test and validate its first-in-class and award-winning Ravata Individual Zygote Electroporator (RIZE) technology which enables gene editing of rodent embryos in a fully automated system.
The MMPC is a national consortium funded by the NIH/NIDDK with the mission to advance medical and biological research by providing the scientific community with standardized, high quality metabolic and physiologic phenotyping services for mouse models of diabetes, diabetic complications, obesity and related disorders. The Mouse Biology Program is one of five academic Centers that provides standardized, high quality experimental testing of mouse models of diabetes, diabetic complications, obesity and related metabolic disorders.
The MMRRC is a national network of breeding and distribution facilities plus an information coordinating center, who together serve as the National Institutes of Health’s premier repository of spontaneous and induced mutant mouse and cell lines. With more than 50,000 strains of mutant mice available to the greater research community, the MMRRC is the largest not for profit repository on the planet and the UC Davis Mouse Biology Program holds the largest collection of the Centers.
The Kids First Pediatric Research Initiative is a pilot project collaboration to develop mouse strains to study, phenotype, and validate coding and noncoding genetic variants (e.g. missense, structural variants, copy number variants, INDELS, frame shifts) identified from Kids First datasets.
The Common Fund’s Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN) is a research study to improve the level of diagnosis of rare and undiagnosed conditions. To learn more about the UDN, visit: https://commonfund.nih.gov/diseases
Through our relationship with the Comparative Pathology Laboratory (CPL), we are able to coordinate gross necropsy and histopathology services tailored for the diagnosis of spontaneous or infectious diseases in laboratory animals. Consultation on experimental pathology procedures, such as post-mortem sample harvest or organ fixation can also be coordinated.
The Mouse Biology Program is a Shared Resource of the UC Davis Cancer Center. The goal of Mouse Biology Shared Resource (MBSR) is to meet the needs of UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center investigators, utilizing genetically-altered mice for basic, clinical and translational research. This involves the coordination of campus resources to serve researchers using genetically altered mice as models for the study of cancer.
