Hereditary Hearing Impairment in Mice

The Hereditary Hearing Impairment in Mice (HHIM) website serves to present updated results from a large scale screening program at The Jackson Laboratory to identify and characterize inbred and mutant strains of mice with associated hearing impairment (Screening). It also presents updated, comprehensive information on mouse models of human hearing disorders (Mouse models), mouse genes and mutations affecting hearing and balance (Genes and loci), map positions of these loci on individual chromosomes (Genetic map positions), and links to other Internet resources of particular interest to scientists using mice in hearing research (HHIM related links). The primary focus is on the mouse as a model for human inherited hearing disorders.
