PHENOMIN is the National Infrastructure in Biology and Health granted in 2011 by the Investissements d'Avenir program.
The Infrastructure gathers 3 complementary centers to serve and support the scientific community for the best use of mouse phenogenomics in Research. PHENOMIN missions and realizations enable to
The Center for ImmunoPHEnomics (CIPHE, Inserm US12 and CNRS/Aix-Marseille Université UMS3367) is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to create innovative customized mouse models delivered under a specified and opportunistic pathogen free status (SOPF) and to analyze in a comprehensive and standardized manner the immune system of the mouse under normal and infectious conditions.
CIPHE, with its cutting-edge expertise in mouse genetics and immunology also pursues the development of knock-in and knock-out mouse models permitting to understand the nature of the "molecular machines" that determine the function of the cells that constitute the immune system. CIPHE comprises
Using multiparametric flow and mass cytometry as well as advanced microscopy approaches, CIPHE has the unique ability to decipher at the systemic level the complexity of the immune system based on the evaluation of up to 300 quantitative parameters.
The Institut Clinique de la Souris (Mouse Clinical Institute) is a large-scale facility open to the community that ensures
The ICS has also established several resources of genetic tools such as CRE-ERT2 lines, nuclear receptor conditional mutants and a list of GEM lines generated through different european consortia. All these models are available on this page.
The Center for Transgenesis and Archiving of Animal Models is a CNRS laboratory providing the scientific community with fundamental biomedical and pharmaceutical research. It is composed of 2 departments: the CDTA and the CIPA.
PHENOMIN : 1st governance certified under ISO 9001 : 2015 norm
PHENOMIN has been approved by Lloyd's register Quality Assurance to the following Quality Management System Standards NF EN ISO 9001:2015. The certification guarantees the requirements of international standard of the quality management system for the "Strategic management, coordination and animation of PHENOMIN: the National Infrastructure in Biology and Health for mouse phenogenomics".
This certification completes the certifications obtained by each of the Infrastructure nodes regarding their fee-for-service and research and development activities in Genetic engineering, Breeding, Phenotyping and Management for murine models.PHENOMIN quality policy (410.3 KB)
