The ISTT Survey on Production of Transgenic Mice was closed on September 30th, 2009. We will now process all raw microinjection data collected and will try making the best use of them, with the help of our associated statistician Laura Barrios, from CSIC.
We have managed to collect: 85 facilities registered, 66 facilities submitted data, 86 sets of data submitted. This is not close to 100 facilities submitting data, as we aimed for, but still a respectable number of facilities that, hopefully, will be enough to extract all sources of variability and generate a number of interesting conclusions, trends and suggestions that could be of help to all submitters and, also, to anyone interested in generating transgenic mice.
Thanks to all of you that contributed with your raw microinjection data. As indicated, all submitters will be contacted, independently, with a customized analysis of their data. Tom Fielder has been invited to present the outcome of these analyses in Berlin, at the next TT2010 meeting. Therefore, don’t miss his talk and do register to attend the next Transgenic Technology meeting!
