UK: NC3Rs launches resource on refinement and reduction of experiments with GA mice
In its resource hubs http://nc3rs.org.uk/resource-hubs the NC3Rs now also includes a section on experiments with genetically altered (GA) mice, advising scientists on how to improve animal welfare of GA mice, reduce the use of these animals and ensure a high quality of experiments to avoid duplication, e.g., by understanding the importance of the background strain and by controlling genetic drift. The resource shall be expanded with further articles on relevant topics.
This resource complements the list of current resources which includes animals in drug discovery and development, blood sampling, experimental design, housing and husbandry and the welfare of non-human primates.
