What is a Transgenic Animal?
Definition: Transgenic animals (commonly mice or rats) are those that have had their DNA altered through the addition of a foreign gene.
Transgenic mice have historically been the preferred species for in vivo research and animal models of human diseases such as cancer.
The use of CRISPR to make customized transgenic mouse models, has allowed Horizon to speed up the process of creating transgenic mice by eliminating the need for embryonic stem cells to generate genetic modifications in rodents.
By using CRISPR/Cas9 and ZFNs, both nuclease based genetic engineering technologies, we can generate transgenic mouse models to your exact specifications.
