Regulatory Compliance Notice: All Transgenic and ES Cell Technology Mouse project requests need to be accompanied by an Animal Use Protocol number (IACUC) and an Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC) protocol number. The protocols must specify the use/production of Transgenic/ES Cell mice and the specific construct in question; if not clearly specified, an amendment will need to be filled with the IACUC/IBC with approval needed prior to the start of work.
