The Application is designed to promote collaboration, decrease the costs associated with obtaining genetically-modified mice, and increase access to mouse lines that are difficult to obtain. An inventory of the genetically-modified mice on campus and the investigators who maintain them is compiled from records of purchases from external sources, transfers from researchers within and outside the university, and from data provided by users. These data are verified and augmented with relevant information harvested from public databases, and stored in a succinct, searchable database secured on the university network. Here we describe this resource and provide information about how to implement and maintain such a mouse inventory database application at other institutions.
