Mouse Lines

Welcome! Please take time to view our putants and confirmed mutants!

Putants stands for putative mutants. These mice exhibit an altered phenotype, but the heritability of the phenotype is not confirmed. Once the heritability of the trait is proven, the mice become known as “confirmed mutants.”

Currently, all of our mutants are listed at Neuromice.org together with over 100 confirmed mutant mouse lines from the Neuroscience Mutagenesis Facility at The Jackson Laboratory and the Neuromutagenesis Project of the Tennessee Mouse Genome Consortium.
