The NIH Autoimmune Rat Model Repository and Development Center

This Center is nearing the end of the model development stage (estimated: February 28, 2004). The final product of the NIH Autoimmune Rat Repository will be banks of cryopreserved pedigreed embryos. Strains will be available in the future by aseptic embryo rederivation of thawed pedigreed embryos. Our remaining resources and efforts will focus on the banking of embryos from all project strains. This is best accomplished by terminating breeding colonies as soon as embryo banks are established.
