Nominate your gene

Nominate your gene for enrollment in the NIH KOMP2 project at UC Davis

  • The KOMP2 project is producing knockout mice and phenotyping data for 3000 genes (
  • KOMP2 is part of the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (
  • We are particularly interested in genes with undescribed yet potentially important functional roles in health and disease
  • Use the form below to make your nomination
  • We will use the information to
    • determine whether your gene meets our selection criteria
    • if accepted, we will prioritize your gene for production and phenotyping
    • if not accepted, the UC Davis Mouse Biology Program can make and phenotype the mouse for you
  • Your information will be kept strictly confidential
  • If you need assistance, contact us at

Search for the gene you want to nominate, and then select it from the drop down menu below.

Please specify the variant and species.

Sample justifications
Implicated by genetic studies for a role in a disease
Known function in a physiology/cellular function/disease process
Target for drug discovery
Mutant would be important model for studying a process or disease
