Minipigs are valuable models for medical research because of their anatomical, physiological and genetical similarities to humans. With the transgenic technologies offered by DAGMAR, it will be possible to create a range of new disease models for preclinical research in diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.
Transgene overexpression may also be accomplished by sperm-mediated gene transfer (see description here).

In all cases, where principal investigators of DAGMAR contribute to the production of genetically altered minipigs, we consider this a scientific collaboration at least for the first paper published on these animals. In all cases the users will be charged for all or part of the direct cost of consumables, animal housing and technical assistance.
