The IMPC (International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium) is an international joint research project that conducts comprehensive phenotype analyses of genetically modified mice using internationally standardized protocols. This project aims to elucidate and create a catalogue of all mammalian gene functions by creating and phenotyping gene-deficient mice for each gene in the mouse genome. IMPC also provides detailed phenotype data and mice disease models for international research communities.
The RIKEN BRC is the only research institute participating in the IMPC project in Japan.
Our team analyzes gene-deficient mice created by the Experimental Animal Division using ES cells
or genome editing technologies. We send the phenotyping data to the IMPC Data Coordination Center
via the Integrated Bioresource Information Division, and they are released along with data
from phenotyping centers around the world on the IMPC homepage.
