The MRC Harwell Archive is a repository for the collection, archiving and distribution of mouse strains developed to promote a cooperative future in mouse genetic research. Our service safeguards germplasm collected from unique mouse strains curated from MRC Harwell researchers and external depositors. The archive also acts as the UK node for the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA) operated by the INFRAFRONTIER research infrastructure, in which MRC Harwell is a long term partner. Holding over 3000 unique mouse strains, our archive is accessible to the biomedical science community worldwide.

The MRC Harwell Archive web portal provides searchable access to:

  • Mouse strains originating from the MRC Harwell
  • Strains held at Harwell on behalf of the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA) and independent researchers
  • Resources generated from specific projects like the MRC’s Genome Editing Mice for Medicine Programme (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 MRC Harwell Archive portal. 

Alternatively, if you are looking to archive one or more of your mouse strains, find out more about the services we offer here.
