Objectives: The project MEDRAT titled "New Tools to Generate Transgenic and Knock-out Mouse and Rat Models" is a Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) in the Sixth Framework Programme of the EU. The project started on the 1st March 2006 for a 3 years period.
It is important to generate a well-standardized technological platform from the new technology, including optimizing the banking and international distribution of the new model animals. Cryopreservation of gametes and embryos from the transgenic animals will be developed as a supporting technology in mouse and rat.
