数据库简述：The National Bio Resource Project for the Rat
数据库主要信息：The National BioResource Project – Rat in Japan (NBRP-Rat) is now operating in its 15th year and contributes as the world’s largest rat repository to various fields of biomedical research. Collection of rat strains and genetic sub strains, phenotypic and genotypic characterization, cryopreservation of embryos/sperm, supply of the collected rat strains and a publicly accessible database of all assembled data are the major goals of this project. Once achieved, this unique database including the unique rat strains will become a powerful tool for biomedical research. A catalogue of comparable, standardized and well characterized rat strains will lead to new and more precise research topics as well as it will facilitate biomedical sciences, drug discovery and advanced chemical research not only in Japan but worldwide.
