Mäuse - Mice
Histology Atlas of the Mouse Mammary Gland
Laboratory of Genetics & Physiology, National Institutes of Health.
Maintained by the NIH, this is the most extensive website devoted to the
mammary gland, and contains a wealth of information, tutorials, and links. Of
particular relevance to this section of the video are pages showing whole-mounts of
developmental stages, and histology of the major structural features.
MMMDB - Mouse Multiple tissue Metabolome DataBase
Institute for Advanced Biosciences, Keio University
MMMDB is a freely available metabolomic database containing a collection of metabolites measured
from multiple tissues from single mice. The datases are collected using a single instrument and
not integrated from literatures, which is useful for capturing the holistic overview of large
Currently data from cerabra, cerebella, thymus, spleen, lung, liver, kidney, heart, pancreas,
testis, and plasma are provided. Non-targeted analyses were performed by capillary electropherograms
time-of-flight mass spectrometry (CE-TOFMS) and, therefore, both identified metabolites and unknown
(without matched standard) peaks were uploaded to this database. Not only quantified concentration
but also processed raw data such as electropherogram, mass spectrometry, and annotation (such as
isotope and fragment) are provided.

Diffusion-weighted uMRI images were acquired over several hours in a high-field
magnet. Diffusion-weighted volumes show a great deal of anatomical detail and
good contrast between gray and white matter. Blockface imaging is a colorimetric
imaging modality free of many of the spatial artifacts that affect serially
stained sections: shatter, tears, bubbles, and other mechanical distortions.
High-resolution color images of the blockface are acquired as it is sectioned,
relying on the inherent contrast of white and gray matter to discriminate
The Mouse Brain Library
Consists of high-resolution images and databases of brains from many genetically
characterized strains of mice. The mission is to systematically map and characterize
genes that modulate architecture of the mammalian CNS. The site contains approximately 750 mouse
brains, and numerical data from over 8,000 mice. The MBL also provides access to online tutorials,
online movies (in QuickTime format), and a collection of links to other interesting Web resources.
RMCA - Rat & Mouse Club of America
RMCA is a club for domestic rat and mouse lovers.
The site contains a link list "Rats & Mice in the Net".
Whole Mouse Catalog
The most recent version of what used to be known as the Mouse and Rat research
page. Since 99% of research animals are rats and mice, those who work with these
species will find many useful references listed here. The site is framed and
contains major headings relating to rodents at various levels from the gene up
through cells, organs, and the whole animal. Organization is straightforward and
uncluttered. Overall the site is a good bookmark for future reference.
