Phenotype summary and association stats


The phenotype page contains three main parts: the phenotype summary, gene association stats and a table of gene variants exhibiting your selected phenotype. 

Phenotype summary

The phenotype summary provides synonyms and a definition from the Mammalian Phenotype (MP) Ontology, as well as information on the procedure used to test the phenotype (Figure 11).

Phenotype association stats

The mouse strains undergo a wide range of phenotype assays. This allows us to make estimates on the percentage of genes that (when knocked out) contribute to a specific phenotype, as shown in Figure 11.

In this example, you can see that the percentage of tested genes associated with abnormal glucose homestasis is currently 7.15% (57 out of 797 knockout mouse strains tested, Figure 11). However, these numbers will be updated as more knockout strains are created and phenotyped.
