The projects are organized by the Eliminate Cancer Initiative, the National Brain Tumor Society, and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

Researchers used CRISPR to engineer mice that have multiple genetic variants associated with late-onset AD to facilitate research into biomarkers and treatments.

The Jackson Laboratory scientists are aiming to create a molecular toolkit that allows for the precise and reversible manipulation of epigenetic modifications.

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.
