Mouse genetics and laboratory animal resources in the Asia Pacific.
The Asian Mouse Mutagenesis Resource Association (AMMRA) is a non-profit organization consisting of major resource and research institutions with rodent expertise from within the Asia Pacific region. For more than a decade, aiming to support biomedical research and stimulate international collaboration, AMMRA has always been a friendly and passionate ally of Asian and Australian member institutions devoted to sharing knowledge, exchanging resources, and promoting biomedical research. AMMRA is also missioned to global connection by working closely with the consortiums such as the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium and the International Mouse Strain Resource.
This review published in Mammalian Genome, discusses the emergence of AMMRA and outlines its many roles and responsibilities in promoting, assisting, enriching research, and ultimately enhancing global life science research quality.
