Transgenic Animal Unit

Welcome to the Transgenic Animal Unit (TAU). Our facility is part of the Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre, and we operate within the Biological Research Center (BRC) in the Wallace Wurth Building.

We generate customised genetically modified mice for medical research purposes, and can offer this service on a collaborative basis to UNSW and external researchers. We use cutting edge technologies (e.g. engineered endonucleases such as ZFN and CRISPR) for genome editing, and aim at developing sophisticated animal models for the study of human diseases.
