Objective: Support distribution of immunology-related, gene-targeted mouse strains to the broader research community.
Description: This Division of Intramural Research (DIR) contract supports the breeding and distribution of novel mutant mouse strains containing gene knockout or novel trans-genes of immunological interest. The program is managed by NIAID DIR staff with input from DAIT staff, and partially supported with extramural (DAIT) funds. The mouse strains to be included in this program are based on projected value to the immunology community. The contract partially defrays the cost of mouse production so that investigators pay a reduced rate to receive animals.
