Australian Phenomics NetworkWeb site: http://www.australianphenomics.org.au/
BackgroundThe Australian Phenomics Network (APN) provides Australian and international researchers with mouse models for the study of human and animal disease.
Established in 2007 with funding from the Australian Government’s National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) and with contributions from state governments, research institutions and the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), the APN brings together mouse production, strain storage and pathology capabilities. APN partners contribute their expertise and infrastructure for the production of mouse models, as well as providing cryopreservation and pathology services. In addition, the APN is working with the Atlas of Living Australia to develop a framework for Australia’s e-science infrastructure to improve the capture, annotation and dissemination of research data.
AMHS ProjectThe AMHS Project will enable the APN funded HOPS to efficiently and effectively contribute its data and metadata to the phenomics network.
