Mouse Fight

The Jackson Laboratory has filed a complaint accusing Nanjing University of breeding and re-selling its mouse models, the Hartford Courant reports.

The research team is developing a computational system for studying the relationship between RNA structure and function.

Effect of Sex

Researchers find a number of traits differ by sex and could affect mouse model studies, according to Reuters.

The Jackson Lab has partnered with the Wenzhou Municipal People's Government, Ouhai District People's Government, and Wenzhou Medical University.

The ASM speaker said that strains collected from two different hospital systems also exhibited overlap in their SNP and other content.

The funding will be used to develop new software and data structures to enable researchers to use the GO data for network-based analysis. 

The grant was awarded by the Human Frontier Science Program, which promotes international research collaborations.

The funding will advance work focused on the discovery of a genomic configuration that correlates to chemotherapy sensitivity.

The funding will be used to develop testing regimens to determine which CRISPR processes and techniques offer the most accurate editing rates in mouse embryos.

The funding will, in part, support efforts to expand the project's catalog of functional elements and understand their roles in different contexts.
