CAMTraST provides transgenic animal model production services to researchers within the U-M system, in other academic institutes, and those in pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Our specialized species are rabbits and pigs. We are also working to develop capacity in other large animal species.
Currently we offer conventional transgenic (random insertion), gene knockout and gene knockin in both pigs and rabbits. The typical turnover time is 3 to 6 months for transgenic rabbit production, and 9 to 15 months for transgenic pig production (as confirmed by genotyping of F0 animals).
