About the INFRAFRONTIER
The INFRAFRONTIER vision
INFRAFRONTIER aims to build a world-class research infrastructure that provides the biomedical research community with the tools needed to unravel the role of gene function in human disease.
The INFRAFRONTIER mission
INFRAFRONTIER will shape the European Research Area in the field of mouse functional genomics and thereby make an important contribution to the study of human disease.
INFRAFRONTIER will set standards for systemic phenotyping of mouse models and for archiving and distribution of mouse mutants in Europe.
INFRAFRONTIER will offer highest-quality services and cutting-edge technologies provided by the leading labs in Europe.
INFRAFRONTIER will disseminate knowledge by state-of-the-art training courses.

The INFRAFRONTIER objectives
Providing access to mouse models, data, and scientific platforms and services to study the functional role of the genome in human health and disease.
Archiving and distribution of scientifically valuable mouse strains through the European Mouse Mutant Archive (EMMA), one of the worlds leading mouse repositories.
Providing access to a whole-organism, systemic analysis of genotype-phenotype interactions using cutting-edge analytical and diagnostic methodology in the INFRAFRONTIER mouse clinics.
Providing bottom-up access for individual scientists and research groups and top-down capacities for large-scale international initiatives such as the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC).
