What you need to know about IMPC data

  • We generate our own data, it is not aggregated from publications
  • We are targeting genes that are yet to be studied
  • We have standardized production methods to knock out genes
  • Mutants and wildtype mice tested under the same phenotyping protocols
Number of phenotyped lines
Statistically Significant Calls

8368 total knockout genes phenotyped
