NEIBank A database of eye libraries and genes and proteins expressed in the eye and visual system maintained by the National Eye Institute (NEI).

NEIBank Executive Advisory Committee

Center for Inherited Disease Research (CIDR) Genotyping and statistical genetics consultation services for investigators seeking to identify genes that contribute to human disease. NEI is one of twelve Institutes at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that support the center.

Mutant Mice The NIH has funded the isolation of mouse lines with selected genetic mutations affecting nervous system function and behavior. These are available through the Northwestern University Neurogenomics Project, the Tennessee Mouse Genome Consortium, and the Neuroscience Mutagenesis Facility at the Jackson Laboratories.

Neuroscience Microarray Consortium In collaboration with the NIH Neurosciences Blueprint Initiative, the NEI is funding a consortium of four microarray centers to serve the expression profiling and SNP genotyping needs of NEI-funded ocular neuroscience investigators. The consortium has multiple microarray platforms available and can provide advice on experimental design. The consortium has laser-capture microdissection services, as well as data analysis, manuscript preparation, and training support. If your research program in neuroscience would benefit from expression profiling or SNP genotyping data, please consider using the services of the Neuroscience Microarray Consortium ( For further information, please contact the consortium coordinator, Ms. Sarah Brautigam, at or (602) 343-8732, or Dr. Hemin R. Chin, Ocular Genetics Program Director, NEI Division of Extramural Research, or 301-451-2020.
