in development Minimal Information for Mouse Phenotyping Procedures

Abbreviation: MIMPP

General Information
MIMPP is a reporting guideline for the minimum information that should be reported about a mouse phenotyping procedure to enable unambiguous interpretation and comparison of the data and to allow the data to be shared through communal resources.

Mouse Phenome Database
Characterizations of hundreds of strains of laboratory mice to facilitate translational discoveries and to assist in selection of strains for experimental studies. Data sets are voluntarily contributed by researchers or retrieved by us from public sources. MPD has three major types of strain-centric data sets: phenotype strain surveys, SNP and variation data, and gene expression strain surveys.

Mouse Genome Database - a Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) Resource
MGI is the international database resource for the laboratory mouse, providing integrated genetic, genomic, and biological data to facilitate the study of human health and disease. Data includes gene characterization, nomenclature, mapping, gene homologies among mammals, sequence links, phenotypes, allelic variants and mutants, and strain data.

The EuroPhenome project provides access to raw and annotated mouse phenotyping data generated from primary pipelines such as EMPReSSlim and secondary procedures from specialist centres. Mutants of interest can be identified by searching the gene or the predicted phenotype.

e-Mouse Atlas of Gene Expression
EMAGE is a database of in situ gene expression data in the mouse embryo. mRNA in situ hybridisation, protein immunohistochemistry, in situ transgenic reporter data, and in situ enhancer data is included. These are sourced from the community and curators take this data and describe it in a standardised way that allows data query and exchange. The description includes a text-based component but the unique aspect of EMAGE is its spatial annotation focus.

International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium
The International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) produces a publicly-available repository that stores information on IMPC processes, data and annotations. The IMPC is an international effort by 19 research institutions to identify the function of every protein-coding gene in the mouse genome by switching off or ‘knocking out’ each of the roughly 20,000 genes that make up the mouse genome.
