MMRRC at the 2013 American Society for Cell Biology meeting in New Orleans

December 10, 2013

The Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Center (MMRRC) will be attending the 2013 American Society for Cell Biology Meeting December 14 through 18 in New Orleans. The MMRRC has been able to map 900 MeSH terms from attendee publications to mouse models within our repositories. If you are attending the meeting, then please consider visiting our booth and speaking directly with one of our knowledgeable customer service staff members.

MMRRC now searchable by major MeSH terms

December 9, 2013

The Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Center (MMRRC) repository simple and advanced search methods now include the ability to search by associated Major Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) terms. MeSH is the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus. It consists of sets of terms naming descriptors in a hierarchical structure that permits searching at various levels of specificity. Major MeSH terms are defined by authors of primary research articles as having the most relevance to the research represented by the article.

Welcome to the Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Centers (MMRRC) Web site.

The MMRRC distributes and cryopreserves scientifically valuable, genetically engineered mouse strains and mouse ES cell lines with potential value for the genetics and biomedical research community. We are a national network of breeding and distribution facilities plus an information coordinating center serving together as NIH's premier repository of spontaneous and induced mutant mouse and cell lines. The MMRRC is supported by the National Center for Research Resources at the National Institutes of Health.

Strains of mice are maintained in a cryopreserved state unless demand warrants that a live colony be established. Live mice are supplied from a production colony, from a colony recovered from cryopreservation, or via micro-injection of a cell line into host blastocysts. At its option, an MMRRC facility may offer cryopreserved material for resuscitation at the recipient scientist's institution. The MMRRC charges fees to partially cover repository costs; please see our Fees page for details.
