The TAF (Transgenic Animal Facility) is a service facility specialized in the generation of transgenic animals. Our mission is to provide access to transgenic technologies, reduce the effort and costs for the investigators and increase the know-how in the field of transgenesis. The main techniques used include generation of genetically-engineered mice, namely
transgenic mice and knock-out/ -in mice.
The platform has been created in 2004 and is financially supported by the Faculty of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne and the University Hospital (CHUV).
