The Jackson Laboratory Cre Repository

The JAX Cre Repository's aim is to provide the scientific community with a centralized, comprehensive set of well-characterized Cre Driver lines and related information resources.

Available strains include Cre expressing strains, inducible Cre strains, Cre reporter strains, and loxP-flanked (floxed) strains.

You can also go to creportal to search for Cre-expressing strains by promoter or site of activity, view detailed characterization of Cre activity including images, and get links to strains available in repositories.

The Cre Repository is currently supported by the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs/Office of the Director grant number OD011190  of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Please reference this grant in citations acknowledging use of the resource.
