  Transatlantic cooperation creating world's largest genome bank

Photo of article The European Commission, US National Institutes of Health and Genome Canada are co-funding a global collaborative research programme aiming at creating mutant mouse lines in every single gene present in the mouse genome. The goal is to better understand the ways a single gene influences the health and well-being of mice by deleting, or “knocking out”, individual genes. Through the study of the mouse genome, researchers expect to gain invaluable insight into disease processes in humans, as mice and humans share 99 percent of their genetic code. In addition to the current initiative, the EU has invested over €135 million since 2002 in mouse functional genomics, easily putting Europe at the forefront of genomic research.

Notes:
To restrict search results to articles in the Information Centre, i.e. this site, use this search box rather than the one at the top of the page.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
