As it is stated in the symposium’s web page: “It is aimed to trigger the development of close cooperation between specialists from CEMIB and those from other institutions world wide, to train a group of biologists in cryopreservation and assisted reproduction techniques and to stimulate discussions to address the future needs and requirements of the Brazilian Scientific community in this area.”
New images have been added to the ISTT collection of mouse pictures. Our colleague, Sergey Kupriyanov (The Scripps Research Institute, Mouse Genetics Core, La Jolla, CA, USA), has contributed with new pictures of beautiful “white creamy” mouse chimeras, obtained by injecting E14 ES cells into an albino blastocyst. Up to 264 pictures and 60 videos are now available from the ISTT web site, members-only section, illustrating different aspects of the generation and analysis of transgenic animals. This great multimedia resource is most appreciated for teaching and learning purposes.
A new book on genetics of mouse pigmentation has been just published, entitled “The colors of mice: a model genetic network” by M. Lynn Lamoreux, Véronique Delmas, Lionel Larue and Dorothy C. Bennett (Wiley, 2010). According to publisher’s page, this new book “… showcases a blend of new technologies and new insights in the field of pigmentary genetics of mice, with comparative information on other animals…”
