The Animal Models module of SFARI Gene utilizes a unique classification system in order to more effectively navigate the intricacies of the animal models.
For the genetic models, each reported model is assigned a name that consists of the gene name, chronologically ordered model number, the model construct (allele type, such as Knock Out, Knock In, etc.), and the genotype (Homozygous, Heterozygous, or Hemizygous). We also classify publications that report the first model of a gene as ``primary,`` with every subsequent publication recorded as ``additional.``
