Morphological phenotype analysis - pathology

Morphological phenotyping of mice is performed by Karolinska Institutet Mouse Models in Solna and Huddinge. 

Pathology is a major and integral part of the phenotyping process of mutant mice in order to find and adequately describe the changes caused by the genetic modification.
