Genetically modified (GM) mice have become the most important organisms to understand the molecular basis of health and disease in man and to serve as suitable animal models for human disease.
Via FinGMice we provide information about services and expertise in generation and analysis of GM mice available in Finland. Furthermore, the aim is to enhance dissemination of knowledge in the field, leading to high-level research.
FinGMice integrates core facilities and service units involved in generation and analysis of GM mice within Finnish universities. It is part of the Biocenter Finland Model Organisms network. The network will strive to combine the expertise available in Finland and strengthen the competitiveness of Finnish biomedical research.
