The Mouse Colony program was developed to minimize the time spent managing knockout/transgenic colonies.  Using Mouse Colony will significantly decrease the time wasted entering data on Excel spreadsheets and will eliminate the waste of resources produced by mismanaging animals.  The best part, Mouse Colony IS FREE!!  Yet, if you upgrade to allow more users or PIs to access Mouse Colony, you will provide more users control over animal tracking, for the price a lab pays for a month's supply of any consumable such as chemicals or antibodies. Mouse Colony is an affordable alternative to expensive LIM systems with recurring annual costs. Moreover, the system is not in a cloud but installed on your own computer or server allowing you, or your IT personnel, to manage the security, back ups, etc.  There is no risk with a cloud service going out of business, since Mouse Colony is in your computer to stay.
