Facility Details

The Mutant Mouse Resource and Research Centers (MMRRC) are a network of research facilities that provide resources and support for researchers using mice as model organisms. The MMRRC was established by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to provide a centralized resource for the production, distribution, and characterization of mutant mice. The MMRRC operates several facilities across the United States that offer a range of services to support researchers, including:

1. Mouse colony management: The MMRRC maintains a large colony of mice used for research purposes. This includes breeding, genotyping, and cryopreservation services to support the production and maintenance of mice with specific genetic backgrounds or modifications.

2. Molecular biology and genomics: The MMRRC has a range of facilities and resources for molecular biology and genomics research, including DNA sequencing, microarray analysis, and gene expression studies.

3. Animal care and use: The MMRRC has state-of-the-art facilities that meet or exceed all regulatory standards for humane animal care and use in research. This includes specialized housing, handling, and husbandry facilities, as well as trained staff to support the care and welfare of mice used in research.

4. Training and education: The MMRRC provides a range of training and educational opportunities to support the development of students and researchers in the field of mouse biology. This includes workshops, seminars, and courses on mouse genetics, breeding, and research techniques.

Overall, the Mutant Mouse Resource and Research Centers are vital resources for researchers and students interested in using mice as model organisms to study a wide range of biological processes.
