This document outlines the projects granted under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 during 2015 with a primary purpose of protection of maintenance of genetically altered animal colonies.

The following projects were granted:

  • breeding, archiving and re-derivation of genetically altered or natural mutant animals (genetically modified and harmful mutant strains)
  • breeding and maintenance of genetically modified zebrafish (haematopoiesis, haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), zebrafish)
  • stock centre and cryopreservation programme (cryopreservation, breeding, genotyping)
  • production of transgenic mice (CAGE, germline, piRNAs)
  • breeding and maintenance of mutant or genetically altered animals (breeding, genetically altered, mutant)
  • breeding and maintenance of gal-deficient swine (swine, heart valves, cardiovascular)
  • production, breeding and cryopreservation of genetically modified mice (genetically modified, embryo sperm cryopreservation)
  • breeding mutant or GA mice and embryo production (genetically altered, embryo, breeding)
