AnonyMus is a laboratory information management system that is being developed for deployment at the end of 2003 in the Mary Lyon Centre at MRC Harwell, a new facility for functional genomics. The system has been developed to ensure real time collection, collation and dissemination of data generated in the facility. The building is of an SPF health status with AnonyMus helping to maintain a paper free environment. AnonyMus consists of a database on a commercial quality relational database management system (Sybase ASE) and a web enabled user front end being developed using JavaTM technologies. The software is being designed to ensure stability, efficiency, accuracy and ease of use in an online environment where animal husbandry, phenotyping and facility management data are accessible alongside UK Home Office licensing data.

AnonyMus is currently being further developed for deployment at the MRC Prion Unit. This involves accommodation of new working practices into the software design and functionality, extending the scientific coverage of the system. AnonyMus will also adopt ontologies being developed within the European Eumorphia project for the recording and dissemination of phenotypic data.

The system is being designed as a 'one stop shop' where the user can access all information stored about the animals or strains under investigation including husbandry, pathology, phenotype data, welfare reports, UK Home Office regulated procedures, cage history, cyropreservation, tissues and other experimental and facility information.
