Information on how to obtain KOMP products, including targeted vectors, ES cells, mice, sperm, and embryos
The KOMP (Knockout Mouse Project) Repository is the sole archive and distribution repository for vectors, ES cells, and mice generated by the KOMP mutagenesis centers. Supported by an NIH cooperative agreement (U42 mechanism) to the University of California, Davis (UCD) and its subcontractor, Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI), the KOMP Repository ensures the preservation, protection, availability, and accessibility of KOMP resources for use by the scientific community. The repository is upon the closely linked infrastructure, technical support, and faculty expertise within the UCD Mouse Biology Program, Center for Comparative Medicine, the Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, and the CHORI-BACPAC Resource. UCD archives, maintains, and distribute ES cell clones, live mouse lines, and frozen embryos and sperm, while CHORI archives, maintains, and distribute all vectors.
Approximately every two months, the KOMP Repository acquires vectors, ES cells, and mice from the two KOMP mutagenesis teams, the CSD Consortium (CHORI, Sanger Institute, and UC Davis) and Regeneron.
