Transgenic Animal Facility

The Transgenic Animal Facility provides UW Madison researchers access to the latest technology for generating transgenic and gene targeted animals at a reasonable cost. We also provide related services such as embryo cryopreservation and strain rederivation.

Facility staff provide the expertise, laboratory space, and pathogen-free animal quarters necessary for the efficient production of transgenic mice and rats and gene targeted mice.

Clients may receive guidance in DNA preparation for microinjection, transgenic animal husbandry, and analysis of transgenic and gene targeted animals.
