Rat Resource and Research Center (RRRC)

The overall goal is to establish a center for distributing high quality, well characterized inbred, hybrid and mutant rats to investigators. To this end, the RRRC will select and import rat strains and stocks important to the biomedical research community; rederive rats to a pathogen-free state; cryopreserve gametes and embryos; perform genotyping, phenotyping and infectious disease monitoring to assure the quality of the rats, and distribute rats to investigators as live rats, cryopreserved germplasm or tissues.
