This site has been created to provide information about the 3Rs principles of animal use and guide their application in wildlife research.
The Interspecies Database helps researchers to make an optimal choice of species and strain of the animal model, which is essential for efficient extrapolation of animal data to humans or other animals.
The ManyPrimates project was initiated to facilitate collaboration across study sites in primate cognition research.
The IMSR is a searchable online database of mouse strains, stocks, and mutant ES cell lines available worldwide, including inbred, mutant, and genetically engineered strains.
Identifying obstacles preventing the uptake of tunnel handling methods for laboratory mice: An international thematic survey
A research article published in PLOS ONE which included an international online survey targeting individuals that work with and/or conduct research using laboratory mice. The survey aimed to identify the handling methods currently being used, and to determine common obstacles that may be preventing the wider uptake of non-aversive handling.
