MODO Consortium: models of diabetes and obesity

We will be hosting a meeting for the MRC Mouse Network in London on 23rd January 2015.

The purpose of the meeting is to update the network on lines produced, phenotyping tests being performed, and any phenotyping results of interest to date. We will also demonstrate the new International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium portal, through which all IMPC data can be accessed, along with associated data analysis tools. We are open to suggestions, if there is anything else you would like us to include on the agenda.

All Network members are welcome to attend. If you would like to attend, or have any specific questions about the meeting at this point, please contact Debbie Ashworth (

In association with the Sanger Institute, MRC Harwell hosted a training course on different bioinformatic resources related to mouse mutants.  Below are the presentations and manuals given during the course.
