Meeting Report

On July 2–3 2015 was held in Nantes, France, the international meeting “Transgenic animals and genetic engineering techniques.” (www.trm.univ-nantes.fr/). This biennial meeting is the fifth one of its kind to be organized by the Transgenic Rats ImmunoPhenomic (TRIP) Nantes facility (www.tgr.nantes.inserm.fr/). The meeting was supported by private companies (genOway, Charles River, Taconic Biosciences, Harlan, and Cosmo Bio Co, Ltd) and by public institutions (the International Society for Transgenic Technology, University of Nantes, INSERM UMR 1064, SFR François Bonamy, CNRS, Région Pays de la Loire, Biogenouest, TEFOR infrastructure, IHU-CESTI and DHU-Oncogeffe and Labex IGO). Around 100 participants, from France but also from different European countries, Japan and USA, attended the meeting.

The meeting included oral invited presentations (below) as well as poster presentations.

Max Van Min (Cergentis, Utrecht, the Netherlands) presented the identification of transgene insertion...
