Laboratory Animals

A range of species are held at the University including rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, opossums, dunnarts, ferrets, fish and some reptile and amphibian species.

Standard inbred lines of mice can be produced at the University or sourced from approved suppliers.

Most facilities within the Platform house a number of genetically-modified lines particular to the facility. A list of GM lines maintained across the University can be obtained by contacting your Biological Resources Facility Manager.
