Project description
INFRAFRONTIER ( integrates repositories of the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA) network and European Mouse Clinics, centers of excellence for systemic archiving, distribution and phenotyping of mouse models for basic research of human health and disease, and facilitates the translation of this knowledge into therapeutic approaches, personalized medicine and disease prevention strategies. Standardized approaches in phenotyping and archiving of mutant mouse lines offer huge animal welfare gains, and ensure that data obtained in experiments with biological material derived from the mutant mice are reproducible and predictable. INFRAFRONTIER has established and is continuously developing a large network of at present 22 partners in 14 European countries and Canada. University of Oulu represents Finland in INFRAFRONTIER, and Biocenter Oulu Transgenic Animal Core Facility serves as the Finnish EMMA node.
