Statement of Principle
This software was developed with support from the NIH and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and is made available to the research community in support of the colony management of mouse models
used in the biological sciences. For over seventy years, scientists at The Jackson Laboratory have been conducting mouse-based biomedical research. As a result, we have accumulated a tremendous wealth of information related to husbandry, genetics and biology associated with selecting and using laboratory
mice in research. We also obtain new knowledge as we provide custom mouse breeding and related support services that is used in our research and the
development of additional mouse models. The cumulative knowledge of The Laboratory is shared with researchers around the world through our scientific
presentations, technical information services, Web-accessible databases, printed literature and publications, and training programs.
