Abstract

This chapter focuses on two database resources that can facilitate the use of the laboratory mouse for genetic and genomic studies of behavior. The Mouse Phenome Database (MPD) contains baseline measurement data for a wide variety of phenotypes in inbred strains of mice and commonly used reference populations. MPD also supports tools for the visualization and statistical analysis of phenotype data. The Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) database is a comprehensive resource for genetics and genomics of the laboratory mouse. MGI collects and integrates information about function, phenotype, disease associations, and developmental gene expression for all genome features in the laboratory mouse.
