  • Results of PHENOMIN 3rd Call

    The National Infrastructure PHENOMIN is pleased to announce the results of the 3rd Call for Proposals 2013: Establishing and characterizing mouse models - conditional Knock-Out (cKO). The Scientific Committee has selected 20 projects amongst 98 submitted projects from 59 PI.
    Consequently, 20 additional new mouse lines will be generated by PHENOMIN team, in order to be available as soon as possible for the scientific community.

  • Departments

    iCS provides researchers with large scale creative abilities of genetic modification and functional analysis in mice. ICS provides and develops open services to the entire scientific community, genetic engineering in mice, zootechny, and standardized functional analysis while ensuring ethics and welfare of animals. The user’s community is composed of more than 300 french, european, public or private labs and pharmaceutical groups.

    iCS consists in 3 highly interactive departments : Genetic Engineering and Model Validation, Mouse Supporting and Phenotyping which generate and characterize more than 200 genetically modified mice per year.

  • Resources & Technologies

    The ICS has a dedicated team to manage its information system whose main goal is to create new mouse tools for the community. The team has developed modern, web-based applications to capture process and analyse all relevant data of the ICS. These databases covers major activities (genetic engineering, animal facility, phenotyping), as well as transversal fields such as quality control.

  • Ethics and animal welfare

    The ICS cares about animal welfare. We have decided to respect, as sensitive beings, animals we are working with. Our scientific results totally rely on animals, that's why ICS' teams are involved in ethics and welfare. Every day, we do respect, as sensitive beings, animals we are working with.
    In 1959, Russel & Burtch have developed the famous 3Rs concept (Replace, Reduce, Refine) in order to protect animals used for scientific purposes. During our projects, we respect this concept. But it is not enough to develop an ethical thinking. Thus, we also improve our procedures in order to obtain a balance between the benefit for science and the animal well-being.

  • Collaborations

    ICS plays a central role in large-scale infrastructures, both on a national level with CELPHEDIA and on a European level through the European Infrastructure Programme InfraFrontier I3.

    Likewise, ICS is a major player in various European funded programs oriented towards mouse genetics such as EUCOMMEUMODICEMMA, GENCODYS, AgedBrainSYSBIO and INTERREG. By joining the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium, ICS contributes to decipher mammalian gene functions in order to better understand human physiology and disease.

  • About ICS

    The Institut Clinique de la Souris - ICS (Mouse Clinical Insitute - MCI) is a research infrastructure of excellence for translational research and functional genomics.

    Founded in 2002 by Pierre Chambon, operated by Inserm, CNRS and the University of Strasbourg and supervised by GIE-CERBM, it provides a comprehensive set of specialised services to academic and industrial users and is a major player in the European post-genomics era programs. The close interaction with the IGBMC strongly contributes to the development and design of new techniques and functional assays.
