MRB is the front end of a relational, fully normalized PostgreSQL database; a diagram illustrating schematically the architecture can be found here. The source code of MRB is available under the GNU general public licence (GPL) as a binary download and via cvs from the CASIMIR Sourceforge project page.

MRB was developed at BSRC Alexander Fleming in the context of the European Commission framework programs MUGEN (Animal models of human immunological diseases) and CASIMIR (Coordination and Sustainability of International Mouse Informatics Resources).

MRB's data collection was compiled through extensive literature review and web browsing, direct or indirect resource personnel contact and via MRB's online questionnaire.
