Trans-NIH Mouse Initiative

http://www.nih.gov/science/models/mouse/

In March 1998, the NIH convened a group of scientists to develop priorities for mouse genomics and genetics resources. In response to the community’s recommendations, the NIH has created a Trans-NIH Mouse Genomics and Genetics Resources Coordinating Group and a strategic implementation plan. For the convenience of all interested investigators, we have established this Web site as a central information resource. This site will provide information on: follow-up meetings to the initial March meeting; funding opportunities for mouse genomics and genetics resources; major resources-producing grants funded in response to the initiative; progress toward meeting the goals of the initiative; major mouse genomics and genetics resources; courses and scientific meetings related to the mouse initiative; and selected reports and publications. When appropriate, items not in response to the initiative, but which are deemed relevant to the initiative, will be posted. Posting decisions are made by a sub-committee of the Trans-NIH Mouse Genomics and Genetics Resources Coordinating Group.
