EMMA - The European Mouse Mutant Archive
The European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA) is a non-profit repository for the collection, archiving and distribution of mice relevant to biomedical research.
The laboratory mouse is the most important mammalian model for studying genetic and multi-factorial diseases in man. Thus, the work of EMMA will play a crucial role in exploiting the tremendous potential benefits to human health presented by the current research in mammalian genetics.
The EMMA network is a consortium of several institutions and laboratories in several European countries with expertise in the field of cryobiology and in methods of assisted reproduction.
The Institute of Laboratory Animal Science / Biomodels Austria is the Austrian node of the EMMA network.
Prof. Dr. Thomas Rülicke (former head of the Institute of Laboratory Animal Science; email@example.com) is member of the Board of Participating Directors of EMMA. Dr. Auke Boersma (firstname.lastname@example.org) is member of the Technical Working Group.
The submission of strains for cryopreservation and the ordering of archived mutant mouse strains and services are possible only using the EMMA webpage.
