Australian BioResources is a state of the art facility for breeding and holding research mice, owned and operated by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research on behalf of the medical research community in Australia.

The facility provides capacity to house the rapidly increasing number of 'lines' or varieties of genetically modified mice that underpin progress in modern medical research.

These mouse colonies are critical for progress in research across all health priority areas, including cancer, mental illness, arthritis, asthma, heart disease, diabetes and obesity. more about us

MEGA Service gives first client GM mice in less than 4 months

The first customers of the MEGA (Mouse Engineering Garvan/ABR) service have taken delivery of their genetically modified founder mice.

Of the 19 mice produced from embryos microinjected with gene-specific CRISPR/Cas9 constructs, 7 founder mice were obtained - a 37% success rate and in less than 4 months from their initial expression of interest. The CRISPR/Cas9 technology can produce constitutive knockouts, single nucleotide mutations or insertions.
