TEA, DINNER OR SUPPER?

Like most big biomedical research projects, DMDD is gathering huge amounts of data. The latest count is more than 5 million images of developing embryos, and thousands of abnormalities (or phenotypes) that have been identified within them. So we need to be organised. All that time spent collecting and analysing […]

Today, DMDD has released many new images and phenotypes for embryos and placentas from embryonic lethal knockout mouse lines. We now hold data on 70 mutant lines that have been phenotyped in detail using the Mammalian Phenotype ontology. The resulting data is freely available to the scientific community and is […]


HOW MICE ARE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING GENETIC HEART CONDITIONS

Nearly 1 in every 100 babies is born with a heart defect. These are the most common type of birth defect and can range from simple, symptomless cases to life-threatening conditions that require treatment within hours of birth. Environmental influences such as excessive alcohol consumption or exposure to other toxins […]
