The Mouse Genome Informatics resource provides data, tools, and analyses for the mouse model organism.

Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix

Learn to use the Mouse Genome Informatics resource, a collection of data, tools, and analyses created and tailored to the mouse, a widely used model organism. MGI integrates genetics, genomics and biology for the laboratory mouse. The history and focus of The Jackson Laboratory research and production facilities generate tremendous knowledge and depth which researchers can mine to advance their research. A dedicated community of mouse researchers worldwide enhance and contribute to the knowledge as well. This is an indispensable tool for any researcher using the mouse as a model organism for their research, and for researchers interested in genes that share homology with the mouse genes. Various mouse research support resources including animal collections and free colony management software are also available at the MGI site.

More about the resource:

Mouse Genome Informatics or MGI, is a collection of databases, tools and resources that advance biomedical research. Genomic data, gene expression data, tumor and cancer biology, and many more aspects of research involving mouse as a model organism are organized and analyzed at The Jackson Laboratory. Databases, reagents, and even community mailing list discussions provided through MGI assist researchers with many areas of their work.
