The international meeting Transgenic Animals and Genetic Engineering Techniques (http://www.trm.univ-nantes.fr) was held on July 2–3 2015 in Nantes, France. This event, organized by the Transgenic Rats ImmunoPhenomic (TRIP) Nantes facility (http://www.tgr.nantes.inserm.fr) and co-sponsored by the ISTT, gathered around 100 participants from France, as well as other European countries, Japan and the USA.
The meeting gave participants the opportunity to update information on techniques and models in transgenesis and genetic engineering. The meeting encouraged students and scientists to expand their knowledge on the potential applications of new techniques to their own models or to apply them to related pathophysiological models for analysis of genes or diseases using genetically modified animals.
Thanks to the organizers and presenters for having made this fifth edition again a huge success!
