The MouseBook web portal provides searchable access to: 

  • Mouse strains available from the Frozen Embryo and Sperm Archive (FESA)

  • Strains held at Harwell on behalf of the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA)

  • Resources generated from specific projects like the MRC’s Genome Engineering Mice for Medicine (GEMM), the IMPC, the Harwell Aging Screen, data on imprinting genes and other resources

Mouse stocks may be held as either live mice or frozen materials and can be ordered directly from the MouseBook portalby clicking the "contact" link on the various stock and variant pages.

The MouseBook portal integrates curated information from MRC Harwell researchers and from external depositors/data resources, to provide added value to the user. 

MouseBook can be browsed by catalogue or by using an intuitive Google-style search engine. Your searches can be restricted by content-type to genes, variants, imprinting genes or regions and stocks. Alternatively, you can find items in the database by searching for gene names, key words or ontology terms.
