This network will function as a one-stop shop for the U.S. biomedical research community to donate and acquire mutant mouse models. The MMRRC network is now accepting genetic mouse strains to its collection and invites investigators who have created such models to donate them to the network for broad dissemination upon request by other investigators who will use them in research of human health, disease, and treatments.
