Transgenic Serivces

The transgenic Services provide a wide range of services on both research projects and colony management. The services are highly specialized and are more efficient when comparing when centralized.

Roles of Transgenic Services in HKUST
  • Research activities (green boxes): Make projection plans flexible by generating tailor-made research models (transgenesis)
  • Colony management (blue boxes): management of retired research models to free animal holding space (cryopreservation); clearing up of infectious diseases from an outbreak (re-derivation); importation of research models (cryo-revival and/or IVF), continuing strains with reproduction deficiencies (IVF).
