Applications of Animal Models
Different animal models can be used as economical and effective research tools to conduct in-depth and reliable experiments for different research purposes.
To study the in vivo function of a gene or its encoded protein and identify its role within cellular processes.
To mimic human diseases for the research on pathogenesis, development processes, related gene-regulation processes, therapeutic treatments, etc.
To allow focused and high-throughput in vivo drug screening for more valuable pre-clinical research and accelerate drug development.
To visualize the in vivo expression of genes or proteins to uncover cell fate and genetic lineage.
Shanghai Model Organisms offers customization and services for a variety of model organisms to meet different research purposes.
