The International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) comprises a group of major mouse genetics research institutions along with national funding organisations formed to address the challenge of developing an encyclopedia of mammalian gene function. 

The IMPC envisages a ten year programme to undertake a broad-based, systematic genome-wide phenotyping project of knockout mice generated from the embryonic stem cell mutant resources developed by the International Knock-out Mouse Consortium (IKMC). Each mutant line will undergo a broad suite of high-throughput tests to identify developmental, anatomical, physiological, behavioural and pathological phenotypes.
