IKMC Genes Mapped (hgIkmc) Track Description


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  • Black: Withdrawn/Problematic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.

The process for ordering EUCOMM materials can be found here.

The process for ordering TIGM materials can be found here.

Information on NorCOMM products and services can be found here.

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.
