For Best Use of Bioresources

Information Services

“Information” is an essential element of bioresources as the basic infrastructure for promotion of the life science. We provide variety of information services to contribute both to life science and data science.

Bioresouce search system

We provide online search system for all bioresouces in the top page of RIKEN BRC Website and search in individual Division. For detailed information, please read How to search bioresources in the BRC Website.
For data scientists, integrated data of bioresource and other datasets in life science are available for download and application programming interface (API).

Mouse genomic variation database   ” MoG+


MoG+ (pronounce, mog plus) is a mouse genome database provides visualized mouse genomic variations among multiple laboratory strains including Japanese wild mouse-derived strains. In this system, you can also search for disease-related information based on shared genes between human and mouse. This database is a renewed version of the mouse genome database “NIG_MoG” and “NIG_MoG2”. It was transferred from National Institute of Genetics to RIKEN BRC. RIKEN BRC has upgraded the contents and made available to the public.

International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC)


At the website of International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC), comprehensive mouse phenotype data which are being analyzed by 25 institutions in 14 countries are available and searchable with keyword of genes, diseases and phenotypes.

Phenotype database ”Pheno-pub”

Phenotype database of Japan Mouse Clinic developed by Technology and Development Team for Mouse Phenotype Analysis.

Online information service on mouse phenotype-phenotype relationships

We provide two application tools, each of which visualizes statistical relationships among mouse phenotypes to promote leverage of the comprehensive phenotype data from the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC).
