Course "The Management of Genetically Altered Rodent Colonies"DOWNLOAD THE PRESENTATIONS BY CLICKING HERE
The course introduces important aspects of managing genetically altered (GA) strains of rodents for breeding and experimental usage.
The distinguished speakers will provide the participants with theoretical and practicalinformation on the maintenance of GA strains, breeding strategies, colony management, husbandry best practices and methods to securing genetic material according to the latest views. Animal welfare and ethical aspects will also be considered. The generation of GA rodents is not a prime subject of this course.
A session of the scientific programme offers the participants the opportunity to present one or more cases from their practice; the interaction between speakers and attendees encourages the sharing of information and practical experiences from which the attendees can benefit to improve their competence in the daily work.
