The “Black Mice Dataset” is a large set of images of C57BL/6JRj mice and a corresponding “well-being” label. It encompasses images of mice that have (or have not) undergone different procedures that impaired their well-being. Images were taken at different points in time before and after the procedures. The images were obtained within the framework of a project, in which the impact of procedures frequently performed in animal experimentation on the well-being and stress levels of mice was systematically assessed by using the mouse Grimace scale (MGS), among other animal-based parameters. According to the treatment of the mice, the data set is divided into the three subsets: KXN (ketamine/xylazine anesthesia), IN (inhalation anesthesia with isoflurane), and C (castration). Animal experimentation was performed according to the guidelines of the German Animal Welfare Act and the Directive 2010/63/EU for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes. Maintenance of mice and all animal experimentation were approved by the Berlin State Authority (“Landesamt für Gesundheit und Soziales”, permit number: G0053/15).
