Technology and Development Teams for Mouse Phenotype Analysis develops "Mouse Clinic" which is a phenotype analysis platform for genetically modified mice that systematically examines more than 400 items, aiming to understand the pathology of human diseases and elucidate gene functions. The Team participates in the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC), publishes the results of the phenotype analyses, and develops new technologies on phenotyping analyses.

Team Mission

  • Development of systematic and comprehensive phenotyping platform for mice
  • International contribution through participation in the IMPC
  • Provision of international standardized phenotyping methods to the domestic research community
  • Development of new phenotyping methods
IMPC_logo Japan Mouse Clinic is one of institutional members of IMPC (International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium).
