Genome Modification

The Genome Modification Laboratory (LMG) was created in 2010 with   a mission to foster the use of genetically-engineered animals within  the country. LMG’s mandate includes: 1) production of genetically-engineered animals such as transgenic mice and fish and knockout mice; 2) specialized training in animal husbandry and micromanipulation techniques; 3) diffusion of knowledge in  modern and established techniques of genome modification; 4) facilitation of research utilizing genetic models through the distribution of useful cell lineages and animal strains. LMG is a non-profit laboratory, but requires competitive fees to defray its costs and retain  its activities.
