This track shows genes targeted by
International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC)
mapped to the human genome. IKMC is a
collaboration to generate a public resource of mouse embryonic stem (ES)
cells containing a null mutation in every gene in the mouse genome.
Gene targets are color-coded by status:
- Green: Reagent(s) Available
- Yellow: In Progress
- Blue: Not Started/On Hold
- Black: Withdrawn/Problematic
The KnockOut Mouse Project Data
Coordination Center (KOMP DCC) is the central database resource
for coordinating mouse gene targeting within IKMC and provides
web-based query and display tools for IKMC data. In addition, the
KOMP DCC website provides a tool for the scientific community to
nominate genes of interest to be knocked out by the KOMP initiative.
IKMC members include
KOMP includes two production centers:
CSD, a collaborative team at the Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute
(CHORI), the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the University
of California at Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and
a team at the VelociGene division of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
EUCOMM includes 9 participating institutions.
NorCOMM includes several participating institutions.
Using complementary targeting strategies, the IKMC centers
design and create targeting vectors, mutant ES cell lines and, to some
extent, mutant mice, embryos or sperm. Materials are distributed to
the research community.
The KOMP Repository
archives, maintains, and distributes IKMC products. Researchers can
order products and get product information from the
Repository. Researchers can also express interest in products that are
still in the pipeline. They will then receive email notification as
soon as KOMP generated products are available for distribution.

Genes were mapped to the human genome by IKMC.
Thanks to the International Knockout Mouse Consortium, and Carol Bult in
particular, for providing these data.
