Scientific Description
Mouse models have become a central tool for the study of the functional basis of human diseases. Infrafrontier Project will lead to the establishment of a sustainable research infrastructure for systemic phenotyping, archiving and distribution of mouse models.The increasing demand of the biomedical researchers for systemic phenotyping, archiving and distribution of mouse models cannot be accommodated with the capacities currently existing in Europe. Infrafrontier Project is funded by the European Commission to set the stage for the implementation of an infrastructure that addresses these needs.Infrafrontier Project brings together partners from twelve European countries and Canada. Our scientific partners are the leading research facilities in the field of systemic phenotyping, archiving and distribution of mouse models. Our administrative partners represent national research ministries and funding agencies.
