The guiding force behind this effort is to promote the widespread use of genetic mutant mice to understand functional genomics. The structure of our consortium is unselfish in nature, and it is in this vein that we are working to:

  1. Establish collaborations with other scientists who specialize in phenotypic screens that would complement and extend the current screens performed within the TMGC;
  2. offer our phenotyping expertise to researchers who would like to characterize a mutant mouse;
  3. encourage researchers to use our mutant mice for hypothesis-driven research; and
  4. establish a communication network to promote the use of mutant mice in biomedical research.
