This rat project is a part of the National Bio
Resource Project for more than 20 species including
animals, plants, microbes, tissues and DNAs. It was
founded by the Ministry of Education, Culture,
Sports, Science and Technology(Monkasho), in Japan.
The work started from July 1, 2002 and will continue
for a period of 5 years. Institute of Laboratory
Animals, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto
University, is the central facility. The purpose
of this project is to facilitate the availability
of genetically and phenotypically standardized rat
strains for experimental research. Closest
attention will be given to Japanese derived strains
but also rat strains from outside Japan will be
taken into this repository. The resource is
available to biomedical scientists worldwide.
