For phenotyping centres, a commitment to phenotype at least 50 lines per year, preferably rising to 100 lines per year within the lifetime of Phase I of the IMPC programme.

For production centres, a commitment to generate at least 50 lines per year, with the ability to distribute live mice, embryos, and sperm, preferably rising to 100 lines per year within the lifetime of Phase I of the IMPC programme. For Secondary level phenotyping groups, a commitment to share data with the IMPC as a whole, and deposit the data into the IMPC Database in a timely fashion.

Agreement to work within the framework of the consortium, including commonly agreed phenotyping pipelines and IT structures. Demonstrable ability to provide the IT infrastructure for the local capture of production and/or phenotyping data and its upload to the IMPC data coordination centre(s).

Agreement to the full release of data to data coordination centres according to IMPC agreed procedures and timelines.

Agreement of production centres to provide the community access to live mice, embryos and sperm as soon as possible without intended hold backs, subject to legal or MTA restrictions.
