Within the LARIF, and in cooperation with our partners, genetically modified farm animals can be produced, reared and studied.

Our facilities include embryology facilities with micro-injection capability, dedicated surgical facilities and environmentally controlled animal rooms - which can maintain animals in a bio-secure environment, from implantation of engineered zygotes through to the rearing of breeding populations.
