Mutation Statistics
Request Mice
To date, a total of  mutations in  genes have been declared causative of  instances of phenotype, based on a total of  assays of phenotype, testing the effects of  ENU-induced coding/splicing mutations.

We display phenotypic data on  mutation-phenotype associations, caused by  distinct alleles of  genes.  of these records have the Candidate Status “Good” or “Excellent,” implying a high likelihood of verification by gene retargeting. These data may be searched, sorted, and viewed using the Candidate Explorer utility.
