The vision of the ASRM is to be the nationally and internationally recognized leader for multidisciplinary information, education, advocacy, and standards in the field of reproductive medicine.
Access the following resources for clinicians from ASRM:
Ovarian Kaleidoscope Database
This database provides information about the biological function, expression pattern, and regulation of genes expressed in the ovary. The database also contains information on gene sequences, chromosomal localization, and human and murine mutation phenotypes as well as biomedical publication links.
Reproductive Genomics Program: Mouse Models of Infertility
This program at the Jackson Laboratory uses ENU mutagenesis to produce mouse models of infertility and includes mutagenesis of the mouse genome, phenotypic screening for infertility mutations, and regional mapping of each mutation to a chromosome. Breeding stock is available for scientists interested in using these models in their own research programs.
University of Virginia Center for Research in Reproduction Ligand Assay and Analysis Core
This center provides high-quality, cost-effective assay services for Reproductive Sciences Branch–supported projects, both internal and external.
Mammalian Reproductive Genetics Database
This database holds information and literature regarding genes and mammalian reproduction.
