Center for Transgenic Mouse Research

July 29, 2011

The National Research Center of Transgenic Mouse has been established at the National Institute of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (NIGEB) in Iran. It is envisioned to provide a centralized facility for the production of transgenic and gene-targeted mice for research.

The Center can produce transgenic mouse by pronuclear microinjection as well as gene knock-out mouse. Specifically, chimeric mouse for modeling human male infertility and transgenic mouse for modeling breast cancer can be developed. Facilities include a transgenesis laboratory, molecular biology laboratory, cell culture room, surgery room, and two animal rooms.
