Until recently, transgenic and knockout models for disease have been limited almost exclusively to mice. Although useful, these models do not always accurately reflect the physiology and pathology of human disease. Now, advances in genetic engineering technology have extended the spectrum of species available beyond mice, enabling the creation of targeted knockouts and knock-ins in rats, rabbits, and zebrafish, with the prospect of achieving precise gene targeting in larger animals, including livestock and nonhuman primates.
Life Science researchers are now presented with an unprecedented opportunity to choose the model system that will best reflect the biology or human disease state being studied. During this webinar, three expert guests will discuss cutting edge genetic engineering technologies and the opportunities to develop more relevant translational animal models beyond knockout mice.
Webinar viewers will:
• Learn about current state-of-the-art genetic engineering methodologies.
• Obtain an overview of new animal models for research.
• Gain insight into the future direction of transgenic animals that have greater translational value for ADMET and disorders related to the metabolic, immune, cardiovascular, and central nervous systems.
• Have questions answered live by the panel of experts.
