Support for Animal Model Construction

Head of the Group
Ryoji Yao (Cancer Institute)

Activity

We prepare and provide genetically modified animals (mice and rats) upon requests from researchers.
We use various technologies such as homologous recombination and genome editing to introduce gene knockout (conventional/conditional) and genetic modifications (insert, replace, introduce a point mutation, and transgenic.)

Also we are flexible to work on to introduce additional mutation to the established mutant animals (spontaneous mutation and genetically mutation), allele conversion as well as in vivo genome editing.
Please contact to the Office for Animal Model Construction Support for more information of the support description, technical arrangements, and detail of the open application.

Eligible Researcher

We look forward to receiving applications from researchers who were funded by MEXT's Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research (new or continued) in FY 2021.
We accept all research categories and research fields. We will set up a special quota to accept young scientists having adopted by Grant-in-Aid for Young Scientists (S) or (A) or (B).
We are scheduled to accept applications twice a year.
