This course is designed to train those who need to analyze mouse models of human disease that are an essential part of their research. Sessions will include hematology, chemistry, histology, and immunohistochemistry methods used in the phenotyping assays. Lecture topics include technical information, protocols, and various phenotyping methods for the analysis of genetically altered mice versus littermate controls. Identification of the different tissues and cell types in the body and the ability to detect abnormalities is the goal, thus enabling the optimal phenotypic analysis of genetically altered mice.

Prerequisites: Standard undergraduate biology courses.
