Restart Planning: Rapid Expansion of Transgenic Lines by IVF Speed Expansion

To avoid lengthy delays in expanding mouse colonies by traditional breeding, the MGEF can perform IVF to generate large numbers of cohort mice rapidly. The advantages of IVF are:

  • Requires only two breeder males or previously cryopreserved sperm
  • Produces a large number of same-age mice
  • Uses oocyte donors from commercial vendors
  • Saves months in breeding time
