The SEFALer platform is a pioneering network structure seeking to provide a comprehensive service in all phases of phenotyping animal models of rare diseases. It is structured through cooperation between services provided by CIBERER groups through different institutions.Actvities include:
1. Characterisation of animal models of human rare diseases.
*Secondary functional phenotyping in the following contexts:
– Platforms for phenotyping transgenic mice.
– Pharmacology and toxicology.
– Degeneration and regeneration studies.
– Ageing studies.
– Characterisation of experimental models forming part of behavioural, surgical studies, etc. Phenotypic selection of reproducers for stabling.
*Morphological phenotyping.
2.CIBERER database: models available, genic expression and phenotype.
3. Technical-scientific advice.
