Summary

The European Commission has awarded a $3.8 million grant to a "virtual archive" of mutant mice used in research on cancer and a variety of other human diseases. Announced at an 11 June press conference in Rome, the award will go to the European Mouse Mutant Archive, a consortium of European institutes that create and store mutant mice and their frozen embryos.
