MGH Center for Systems Biology Misha Pivovarov Problem: Need for coordinated sharing of mouse strains at MGH CROI eSuggestions: RES #127

Request Summary: post a list mouse strains used at MGH for sharing with other PI's Received:Thu Nov 15 16:33:31 2012 RES #543 Request Summary: PI has requested a mouse models database be developed. Received: Fri Nov 28 19:06:21 2014

Acquiring mouse strains is often slow and expensive shipping ($30 - $500) health reports (few weeks) quarantine (6 weeks, ~$300) rederivation (2 months, $2500-$3000)

embryo cryorecovery (2 months, ~$2500) institution importation bans Poor communication within the large MGH research community more than 6000 research staff

many incidences of people purchasing/importing mice already present at MGH Solution: Mouse strain database (resource) to facilitate sharing among MGH investigators

Advantages: comprehensive quick results no email spam personalized, private requests between investigators

Disadvantages: requires data entry requires periodic updating difficulty of searches based on strain names may require knowledgeable staff effort to oversee database

24 52 This database is urgently needed at MGH in order to economize mouse purchasing holding for investigators.

Some of the strain cannot be shared unless there is a permission from the developer, this database has to overcome that. I hope that researchers will see this as an opportunity to set up collaborations, no just as a way to save time and money on buying mice. Thank you for the great initiative. We have 80+

lines and would be happy to share if the condition allows us to do so... Great idea. I suggest extending it to genetic rats as well. I think this is a great idea and I keep telling this to everybody, so finally somebody heard my

voice. Thanks a lot! ... It would be wonderful to develop also a resource to exchange knowledge about effective breeding programs for mice. Desired features of sharing resource

Comprehensiveness mouse strains from commercial vendors, public repositories, academic labs updated periodically

Ease of use web-based application simple, intuitive interface

Privacy access only through Partners secure login investigator identities revealed to each other only after request is made

Limited scope resource only matches seeker with provider legal issues (MTAs) to be coordinated by seeker and provider transfer issues to be coordinated by seeker and provider MGH BioShare Resource
