Management of unanticipated outcomes in transgenic mouse facilities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Experimental manipulations of rodents may result in unexpected adverse phenotypes that present problems from both regulatory and animal care-veterinary perspectives. The authors discuss the implications of unanticipated outcomes and describe a cage card-based tracking system used at the Harvard Medical School for the early detection and handling of unanticipated phenotypes in genetically altered rodents.
