Participate to the annual meeting of the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) hosted this year by PHENOMIN-iCS at the IGBMC. The topic will be: “Investigating mouse models for fundamental and biomedical research”.
The International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium provides the research community with a long-lasting resource of mammalian gene function encyclopaedia. The IMPC is generating over 20.000 knockout lines which are available to researchers through established repositories (EMMA-INFRAFRONTIER), and phenotypes are uploaded to a central database where they can be accessed and searched through by the biological and biomedical science communities. Clinicians can use IMPC data to find relevant mouse models to human diseases by orthologous genes and by shared phenotypic features.
The major aims of the meeting are to:
- Promote the IMPC mouse lines
- Present progresses performed by IMPC with regards to phenotyping covering metabolism, behavior, embryology and recent development in imaging
- Share the CrispR/Cas9 expertise in “genome editing” workshop
- Support on scientific projects about “Mouse models of human diseases”
- Support on functional genomics of host/intestinal bacteria interactions
