Strategies for Germ-line Modification in the Rat

The National Center for Research Resources, National Cancer Institute, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, National Institute on Aging, and National Institute on Drug Abuse, invite applications for the purpose of establishing methods for the efficient production of rat models that contain germ-line mutations that will facilitate the transfer of biological concepts to human health problems. Development of rat embryonic stem cell (ESC) technology by modification of current techniques or development of new approaches will meet the needs of researchers using the rat to study human health and disease. This initiative is designed for rat models only and should not include human subjects or tissues.
