IMPC is a research infrastructures of global relevance

The International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium Global Research Infrastructures (IMPC GRI) addresses one of the grand challenges for biology and biomedical science in the 21st century – to determine the function of all the genes in the human genome and their role in disease.

A recent report by the Group of Senior Officials on Global Research Infrastructures presented to G7 Science Ministers at Turin in September 2017 highlights the results of the Case Study Exercise and identifies two GRI proposals – the Underground Laboratories Global Research Infrastructure-UG GRI and the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium Global Research Infrastructure-IMPC GRI – that have developed robust implementation plans and that could greatly benefit from recognition and ministerial endorsement to pursue the realization of their roadmaps towards greater coordination at the international level, in good alignment with the GSO Framework criteria. IMPC GRI is also named as a reference on how to develop good practices in the data management.

The Czech Centre for Phenogenomics is proud to be one of the international nodes of IMPC GRI.
