Science is organized knowledge. - Herbert Spencer, philosopher
No scientist today will contest the fact that animal models play an absolutely critical role in biological research, and have greatly furthered our understanding of human disease. Transgenic animals, and mice in particular, are widely used in research today: the experiments these animal models have allowed have provided the scientific community with invaluable information, and will only continue to do so in the future.
So why introduce the origins of transgenics? The experimental successes that followed the first transgenic mouse has led to the widespread use of transgenics throughout research facilities across the world. Which has increased the number of animals used in research. And as a consequence, this has in turn necessitated the creation of reliable tracking methods, or data management systems to increase efficiency and productivity in the management of mouselines, breeding schemes, and mouse related experiments.

A breeding core provides reproductive services to the research community to reduce over-breeding, excessive per diem fees, and associated laboratory personnel costs. Breeding cores may struggle to find a balance between these services and the human, technical, and financial resources needed to perform them. Responsible operation of a breeding core requires the ability to think like a business manager and a scientist at the same time. With fundamental business strategies, the right communication, and tracking tools along with a best-practice mindset, breeding cores can optimize processes, provide measurable insights into core functions, and increase awareness and trust among the research community. Attendees will learn about the tools available to implement business strategies and improve overall breeding core function, communication, and return on services provided.
