Scientific Tools and Databases

Resource Sharing
All Program Project Grant investigators conform with Public Health Service (PHS) policy and make all unique research resources readily available to qualified individuals within the scientific community for research purposes following publication. In many cases, such material is shared prior to publication. Indeed, our faculty have contributed numerous lines of mutant mice to Jackson Labs and to the Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Centers, and have distributed enumerable probes, antibodies, viral vectors, and lines of mutant mice to a large number of investigators nationally and internationally.

Research findings from this Program Project Grant are disseminated to the scientific community and lay public as extensively and as rapidly as possible. The major form of disseminating information to the scientific community is via research publications. One of the most important measures of the success of this Program Project Grant is the publication of highly novel findings in premiere journals of the field. Please see bibliographic listings under News & Publications.

To receive information on specific animals, antibodies, or other scientific data, please email your request to the primary author on the publication or contact Celeste Reyes (celeste.reyes@mssm.edu).
All gene expression and chromatin data generated by this Project Project Grant are available online at the link below. We are now depositing all of our genome-wide data in Gene Expression Omnibus (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo). In addition, we are working with the Neuroscience Information Framework (www.neuinfo.org) to deposit our genome-wide data in that system, which is developing more robust tools for user interrogation.
