Jackson Laboratory is re-creating the genome of the female mouse from which its line of C57BL/6J mice descends, according to Nature News.

Participants in the pilot will begin developing the capabilities required for the planned data commons, including making data transparent and interoperable.

The Jackson Laboratory and Seven Bridges have won a $2 million grant to create a platform for coordinating research with patient-derived tumor xenograft data sets.

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.
