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 2021, distributed them to researchers from more than 2,000 organizations, in upwards of 64 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 2021, 600 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.
