Program areas at Jackson Laboratory

Develop and provide genetic resourcesthe Jackson Laboratory (jax) is a global resource for developing, distributing and analyzing innovative models of human disease. It offers an array of model creation, husbandry and diagnostic and analytical services, ranging from custom breeding and strain preservation to drug efficacy studies and genome sequencing, all focused on empowering basic scientific research and drug discovery.jax maintains close to 13,000 genetically distinct strains of research mice. In 2022, distributed them to researchers from more than 2,400 organizations, in upwards of 68 countries used jax research mice to support efforts to find cures for The world's most devastating human diseases and bring advanced therapies to patients. The Laboratory also hosts The mouse genome informatics databases, The world's source for information on mouse genetics and biology.in 2022, 500 mouse strains were donated to The Laboratory or developed by jax research staff with academic/foundation or publicly funded research programs. The Laboratory makes these resources publicly accessible through its repository, production and research services. Distribution of these strains helps support cures for The world's most prevalent human diseases and accelerates The time to bring new therapies to patients. The Laboratory collaborated with other non-profit patient foundations for rare diseases to establish mouse resources to further preclinical therapeutic studies.the Laboratory makes The jax clinical knowledgebase (ckb) resource publicly available, enabling clinicians, and translational researchers to interpret complex cancer genomic profiles. Acceptance and usage of ckb has been steadily increasing; ckb has received over 900,000 visits since its launch in 2016. The public site had over 3,000,000 page views in that period.
Education and trainingthe Laboratory offers educational programs for scientists throughout their careers from stem education for high school students and training for science and math teachers to courses and conferences for experienced researchers defining The cutting edge of genomics into their practices.for more information on The Laboratory's program services, please refer to The Jackson Laboratory 2022 accomplishments at httpswwwjaxorgnewsandinsights2022...
Biomedical researchthe Laboratory's researchers combine experience in mammalian genetics and human genomics to shape an integrated approach to personalized medicine.
