Zebrafish facility

Zebrafish is one of leading models for studying the embryonic development, for modeling human diseases and for toxicological tests. This model presents many advantages: Very rapid embryonic development (all major organs are formed within 3 days) Transparency of the embryos (allowing visual observations of internal structures and non-invasive imaging) Short generation time (sexually mature after […]

Mouse facility

In applied research, mouse models remain a mandatory step to evaluate the efficiency and toxicity of potential treatments. The short live cycle and a high prolific make mice a very interesting model. The mouse genome is well-known and shows a high homology with human. Transgenic mice constitute a potential tool for deciphering the role of the targeted […]
