The characterization of mutants represents a valuable instrument for functional genome analysis. Novel mouse models for metabolic diseases are in the center of our projects. By unraveling the molecular pathways and pathophysiological events leading, in particular, to diabetes we also transfer the basic research results into the development of novel strategies for diagnosis, prevention and therapy.
As a service platform we offer to interested scientific groups the ENU DNA F1 Archive with 16,800 paralleled DNA and sperm samples of ENU mutagenesis derived F1 mice for the screening of genes of interest.
